Glorious russet toning with a splash of iridescent aqua through stars 1-7. Vibrant cartwheel luster enhances the eye appeal. Friction is confined to the high points; the few signs of circulation or handling are buried under the lovely toning. Don’t overlook the R.4 rarity rating when formulating your bid. Alas, Tim misplaced his notes on the provenance of this offering. I find no record of it appearing at auction. PCGS suggests a value of $2,500, a bargain price for this example.
Estimate: $2,500 to $3,000
