A remarkable GEM! We grade the coin PR65.8+. We do not know why no + from PCGS.
While more were struck than previous dates they clearly were not struck with the strong cameo contrast that this remarkable GEM possesses. The contrast is bold, created by the amazing, deep mirrored fields that offer superb clarity against the well struck frosted devices. The eye appeal is very high end and this coin is among the three finest DCAMs graded by PCGS.
Only 1,000 were struck. PCGS 1, NGC 1, CAC 1. This GEM sold in February 2009 for $8,625. We did buy this out of our May sale for a silly cheap price of $5,405.00. The current Collector’s Universe value is listed at $7,500 and there are only two finer at PCGS, the finer of the two is the PR66+ DCAM we sold in July 2017 for $12,338. This fantastic GEM is worthy of inclusion in ANY GEM set. What a great coin at such a ridiculous great price!
