The depth of luster is startling. Worn dies undoubtedly influenced PCGS’ decision to call the coin “AU.” There is nothing about the coin to suggest it circulated or was mishandled. The silver-grey toning is of ancient origin. A pair of toning streaks on the reverse are exaggerated in the photo. In-hand preview is suggested.
Estimate: $1,200 to $1,600
