Most were lost to time due to the Civil War effort and it is estimated that only 85 exists today in all grades. This offered example has no ticks, hits or marks. In fact it is mark free that we surmise it must have been a pocked piece or kept by someone who understood its rarity. Only 85 coins are known!No recent comps exist except for one a decade ago. A lovely example with slight tan toning.
