Item Description:
An extremely rare issue from the New Orleans mint, only 5 pieces are graded finer by PCGS with only a single piece reaching the mint state levels. Virtually unobtainable, a similar piece has not been on the market for the better part of a decade. Nice luster with flashy yellow surfaces, this is an excellent coin that is drastically underrated.
