Frosty, uncirculated with cabinet friction on the cheek is an apt description. The coin, we may be sure, never entered the stream of commerce. Contact marks are difficult to find. The depth of luster is noteworthy. Tim was still climbing the ladder to 100 die marriages (the BHNC minimum) when he bought this coin from me in March 1989.
Estimate: $800 to $1,100
