Ex Donald Frederick. A highlight of Heritage’s April 2010 offering of Don Frederick’s collection. (Frederick provenance noted on label.) The coin is richly toned with smooth, glossy surfaces – easily earning an “A” for eye appeal. Dr. Charles Link found it irresistible, paying $1,610 to capture lot 2968. Tim pried the coin loose in Nov. 2011 in a trade with Dr. Link. The worn dies and formidable reverse die break are stark reminders of the early Mint’s insistence on using dies well into their dotage. This is an important coin for the advanced collector.
Estimate: $2,000 to $3,000
