Ex Tom Sears. Brilliant centers surrounded by a halo of iridescent album toning. A high-end “55” that on most days would grade a notch higher. Strong cartwheel luster and superbly detailed devices augment the eye appeal. Tom spotted the coin in Heritage’s February 2005 sale of The Richard J. Chouinard Collection where lot 1096 was offered as AU 58.
Estimate: $900 to $1,200
