A SUPERB GEM and totally original in every respect!
A brilliant luster swirls over extremely smooth and perfect surfaces and boldly struck design devices. Touches of original and pretty amber-gold/pale green/pale reddish brown colors, mostly at the peripheries make the design elements standout in a near 3-D effect, especially in Sir Walter Raleigh’s beard and ruffled collar. The eye appeal is terrific!
PCGS 19, NGC 38. Prior to this coin realizing $3,645.00 in our May Auction, the last PCGS MS68 to sell was CAC approved and realized $3,760 in February 2017. A non-CAC coin sold in 2015 for $5,170 and the current CU value is $4,500. Only 1 coin, a 68+ is finer at PCGS. Do know, this is a coin we would have purchased out of any auction!
If you are building a top notch Commem set, this coin is more then worthy of inclusion! Certainly, there are more then 20 people building great sets!
