Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: At one time this issue was considered very rare. In the last several decades, however, significant numbers were found in South American and European banks. The date is still quite scarce and usually seen in the lower levels of Mint State. Gem and Superb examples are extremely rare. The finest coin known for the date is from the famous, Eliasberg collection. The coin had been obtained by John Clapp at time of issue. Many of the greatest gold coins from this time period known have their origins from the Clapp collection.
