Another Red Book condition rarity - though “R.1” to die variety collectors. Why are there so few AU or nicer examples? I don’t have the answer. This untoned example sports extravagant luster, obverse and reverse. Weakness at the eagle’s head and left wing is a hallmark of the variety and stark contrast to the well-detailed obverse portrait. Unless you find clash marks a bother, you will adore the nearly mark-free surfaces. It was last offered by David Kahn in 2009. The similarly graded example in MB 45, lot 14, ex Jules Reiver, brought $6,655. Be ready for a battle!Estimate: $3,500 to $5,000
