Lot 1924

$2.50 Liberty. 1870. PCGS graded MS-65 H. W. Bass Jr. Coll. As described in the Bower's sale:

"A fantastic gem, brilliant and bright with prooflike surfaces, a coin which cannot be much different from the day in which it was struck. While the present piece will stand high and proud because of its grade and appearance, it is also a notable rarity. Only 4,520 business strikes were produced. According to Breen, 'Most survivors are EF, higher grade coins are extremely rare.' Another memorable opportunity. Whatever the price paid the coin will be owned by the purchaser, while all others competing may have to wait a long time before getting one - possibly never reaching this goal."

PCGS population is 1 with none higher! (PCGS # 7811) .
Estimated Value $15,000-UP.
From the Harry W. Bass, Jr. Coll. Part II, lot 568. Formerly from Lester Merkin's sale of Sept. 1967, lot 349.

Realized $17,825
