Item Description:
The popular Classic head type coin is well represented here with this absolutely beautiful specimen, boasting nice warm gold patination and resplendent luster. It appears that the only other MS65 has been crossed to an NGC holder and this one is now the lone top pop example, with no others graded finer at PCGS.
