Struck from the same workhorse die pair as the preceding lot. Hard to believe. Here is a glorious exception to the homely, scratched or otherwise damaged examples we have seen of late. Just over a dozen pieces are known. This one has been off the market since it debuted as a raw VF 20 in MB 31, July 2005 lot 87 @ $3,631. (My SF ANA sale that included the Burke/Parsley 1817/4.) Here is a problem-free example with medium grey toning, lighter on the devices. It will make a wonderful addition to an advanced Red Book or die variety collection. I will stick with my grade, VF 20. PCGS graders have trouble distinguishing circulation wear from soft devices attributable to aging, worn dies.Estimate: $4,000 and up
