Choice $635 New October 17! 85% CAC Buyback! Type 2 Reverse, Natural Gray Patina, Choice Surfaces, Strictly Original. The Wiley-Bugert reference describes this issue as underrated, and a quick glance at the Guide Book verifies that the mintage is less than a million pieces, contrasting with the pricing profile, which matches that of a type coin. Such opportunities are one of the attractions of collecting Seated coins. This piece exhibits a medium tan obverse with olive highlights at the rim, while the reverse features intense, speckled deep gray in the fields, offset by steely luster in the protected areas. The strike is strong, with defined star points and superior detail in the eagle feathers. WB-101, type 1 reverse with shorter base of L in HALF. Housed in a PCGS Gen 4.3 (2005) holder with CAC approval.
