Henry’s note: Misaligned die, about 5%, with the obverse being struck off center. Purchased by me from the Russell J. Logan collection auctioned by Bowers and Merena Galleries November 6-9, 2002, lot# 2317, where it sold for $862.50. In the sale catalog, the description says simply “Struck 5% off center at 6:30” and the photo accompanying the lot does not match the coin. Earlier from Stu Witham to Russ Logan in April 1992.
A dramatic example of the error, with an unbeatable provenance. Silver-grey toning with underlying hairlines.
Estimate: $750 to $1,000
