Item Description:
This stunning specimen is tied for finest known example of this very tough Civil War era gold piece struck at the San Francisco mint. This boldly lustrous example has a semi-reflective quality to the fields giving a beautiful backdrop for the crisply rendered devices to standout against. The eye appeal is phenomenal with no perceptible signs of wear. This rare Mint State survivor is certainly worthy of the advanced collector.
