Cert # 138924-001
Coin Number 117
This is the Eliasberg coin from The United States Gold Collection auction by Bowers and Ruddy in October 1982 as there is s tiny speck below the 86 which shows on the photo from that famous sale in 1982 which matches to this coin. There are approximately 10 to 12 known from an original mintage of 50 pieces in Proof. It is not clear what happened to the majority of those struck, but they are clearly not around in the numbers one would expect to survive. This one is certainly tied for the finest and offers strong contrast between the fields and devices. Here is a wonderful example of this numismatic delicacy.
