A phenomenally difficult date to locate in just about any decent grade, even on the West Coast where they circulated. Heavy circulation demand during the Gold Rush period combined with a low mintage condemned most examples to vanish over time; one estimate is that as few as 500 exist in all grades. This is an apparently original example in the tough middle grade range. PCGS Pop of only 9 coins in the grade; 60 circulated examples shown better, which undoubtedly includes resubmissions. Some evident marks on the Obverse are very old and did not appear to bother PCGS. I have had the opinion of others that they were a bit tough on this coin, as some felt it could have graded VF. Regardless, a coin that should sell based upon it's own merits of extreme scarcity - if you need/want one, you have to strike while the iron is hot. Please remember also my 5% discount for payment by check.
