DLRC #: 234168 // PCGS #: 3939

Wow. We are very excited to offer this key overdate in the most desirable of collector grades. An MS62 example, such as this is ideal for the collector assembling a mint state collection, as even MS63's jump to values over $60,000. PCGS reports grading just nine coins in MS62, but we feel certain that at least (5) of those are repeat submissions for someone seeking an MS63+ grade. Overall the strike on this example is decent with a full rounded horn but not particularly sharp in the Bison's hair otherwise. The luster is above average which suggests that the coin is technically nicer (63+) but lacks the strike for a higher grade. Also we note a few light toning specks on the obverse which are nothing more than that…
