Scratch - AU Detail. Large Stars Obverse.
Large Stars Obverse. Boldly struck with flashy mint luster over semi proof-like surfaces. The marks that define the grade are relatively small and positioned to offer the least distraction. Additionally, there are none of the adjustment marks that are often seen on early gold. The eye appeal is outstanding and exceeds the technical grade!
Large Date. Flashy mint luster from semi proof-like surfaces.
Very scarce with a mintage of 11,800 and just 60 to 80 known survivors. None are known in mint state. This is a well detailed example and is fairly clean for an issue that is plagued with problem coins. Only 3 AU-55 and a single AU-58 have graded finer at PCGS.
Rare in all grades as just 12,000 were minted and an estimated 80 to 100 have survived. This example has solid detail and is attractive for the grade.
Flashy yellow-gold luster and a sharp strike. A modest 208,700 minted with the finest graded being just a point finer than this example.
