Original $450 Original Surfaces, Uniform Gray-Rose Patina, Well Struck, Conservatively Graded, Saw Mill Run Collection. When first examing this lovely 1844 New Orleans strike, my grading was EF45 or even a tad better. Then I was surprised to see that the PCGS Gen 4.4 holder with an assigned EF40 grade. Really? This is quite the conservative grade. Overall, this example is quite pleasing an well balance. Strike is deeply impressed along with original toning and blemish free surfaces. Bright light inspection reveals blue obverse fields and rose-brown on the reverse with ample remaining luster. Housed in PCGS Gen 4.4 holder with standard ring insert. Though not CAC approved, this is an above average quality offering from the Saw Mill Run Collection
