In the Saint world, there really IS a huge difference between dreck and absolute top quality. The prices can be 75%different.
This coin is full Beast mode quality. We grade it an MS65.8+! That is a powerful statement for this particular date.
Outstanding surfaces have only two tiny obverse ticks that can only be seen with strong glass. The cleanliness of both sides is extraordinary. A thick satiny texture can be seen all over. The luster is above average for a 1922. Both sides enjoy a beautiful and totally original deeper gold/pale orange gold color. There are no spots or discolorations. Miss Liberty and the details are well struck. The eye appeal is beautiful!
PCGS 1550, NGC 517, CAC 363. PCGS has graded 35 in MS65+ and just 8 in MS66. The last PCGS CAC MS65+ to sell in auction brought $12,925.00 04/2017. Do NOT be fooled by the pops. MS65+ CAC pieces are exceedingly rare. This is the first one we have owned since 2014.
