Even, antique grey toning with soft underlying luster. Smooth, mark-free surfaces suit the AU designation. A short drift mark (imperfection in the planchet) crosses the first S in STATES. It was of no consequence to PCGS or CAC. Expect competition from those assembling an AU Redbook set.
Estimate: $950 to $1,300
