Item Description:
Exciting and Affordable Stella
If you are  like most collectors, your ambitions include one day owning the famous $4 Stella gold piece -- named for the Star-design on the reverse.

This coin is perfect affordable example for the collector. This piece has sharp XF-AU details (probably closer to AU than XF) but was once cleaned. It has since toned gently in the devices leading us to conclude that the cleaning was done a long time ago.

Very close and careful examination also reveals that the coin once had a small hole in it around 11 o'clock. The coin has been expertly repaired -- so well that the previous owner missed the damage -- but NGC did not.
