Item Description:
This rare Mint State survivor from an original mintage of just 58,000 pieces. This gorgeous specimen is tied for finest known PCGS example of this challenging O-Mint issue. Sharp to fully struck throughout, the design elements standout beautifully against distraction free fields. Traces of reflectivity enhance the rich golden surfaces and create fantastic eye appeal. A stunning and nearly unrivaled piece! This coin has an interesting provenance as it appeared out of an old-time collection at a coin shop in Louisiana in the past 3 months. It proceeded to trade hands on a wholesale basis to a local dealer in the area before it arrived on DLRC's doorstep. A truly unique piece that should be considered for an upgrade at PCGS!
