Description & Analysis

An exceptionally rare issue that is even more elusive than its mintage of 15,500 pieces would suggest. Even in XF Breen termed the '61-S 'prohibitively rare.' In AU only a couple of pieces are believed known, and none are certified or even rumored to exist in mint condition.
