The common currency issues were generally ignored by collectors at the time.  Nobody much bothered to seek and set aside choice examples.  So when an example in this quality turns up, it's something really special. Beautifully struck with brilliant, booooming lustre, this coin is a joy to...

What a beauty!  The obverse is slightly proof-like with a generous splash of gold, the reverse is blast-white with radiant lustre.  One tiny (REALLY tiny!) nick hidden in the beard is all that keeps this coin from being full MS67.  For those of you who love top-of-the-pops plus gorgeous...

This is the real deal!  The obverse with swirling deep orange/vermillion lustre, the reverse blast-white with just the start of color at one point.  There have been only 10 pieces graded this high, and I think the two we have here (see also PCGS #17247535) just HAVE to be the prettiest. ...

This is our companion piece to PCGS #17247534.  On this one, the obverse has a blazing orange/gold tone while the reverse is a stunning blast-white.  There have been only 10 pieces graded this high, and this one MUST be the absolute prettiest.  No apologies for the price, but if you want...

What a neat coin! Problem-free with satiny obverse, the reverse with nice reflectivity.  Some tiny nicks which blend nicely into the hair and beard, are all that keep this coin from at least MS65+. Delicate greyish toning in the incription on the obverse sets the portrait off nicely.  On...

A beautiful coin with full, blooming lustre.  The small ticks which you will see under a glass are not, in my opinion, enough to keep this from MS65, but maybe PCGS misinterpreted some of the many die-cracks.... I don't care how picky you are, this is one lovely coin, well worthy of the...

I feel that MS61 is a bit harsh as the lustre is virtually intact with a lovely "sweep" on the reverse.  The only fault is a small scuff near the neck truncation, which you can only really see if you catch the light just right.  These small coins are rare in high grades as they were not...

The "+" button must have gotten lost under the table when they graded this one.  I can see no reason why this lovely little coin didn't get one!  Fully struck detail on slightly reflective mirrors brings out a nice contrast with full, sweeping lustre.  The only contact marks on this coin...

A beautiful "white" coin with bright, satiny shine overall, the fields on the reverse with slight reflectivity.  Only a few very minor and very discrete ticks keep this coin from being AT LEAST a full grade higher.  This issue is often found with a rather "mushy" striking, but the example...

You'll need a glass to see what keeps this coin from being graded higher, and even WITH a glass, you'll see the contact points blending into the beard.  Nice contrast with somewhat proof-like fields make this coin fully deserving of its "+".
