Scarce Date, Choice Original, Crusty Gray-Gold Patina, Well Struck, Accurately Graded. Classic crusty gray-gold patina is the highlight of this choice original 1898 New Orleans Barber half. Accurately graded at the AU53 level with residual luster during inspection under a light source. Most choice examples of this scarce date (CAC approved) are at the Fine and Very Fine grade level. In all AU grades, CAC has only approved three examples; think about this fact for a moment, only three! There are two AU53 and one at AU58. GFRC is so pleased to offer one of the three pieces approved in AU grade for astute collector consideration. Housed in older blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert. CAC approval rewards the strict originality and accurate grading. December 1969
