This charming example of a popular Red Book variety was unknown to collectors until Heritage auctioned The Property of a Lady in its February 2018 auction (lot 4552 @ $6,600). The iridescent gold and turquoise toning is both original and a feast for the eyes. The late die state, with impressive vertical and horizontal die breaks, contributes to the charisma of the issue. Tompkins notes that no uncirculated examples from this die pair are known. The advanced collector will do well to place this one in his or her cabinet. Discard standard price guides when a coin of this caliber surfaces. Estimate: $5,000 to $7,000
