BD-1, Breen-6842, Bass-3192, Taraszka-23, High R.3. Details of Choice Uncirculated or Better. Bright and lustrous yellow-gold with a decided olive cast, somewhat prooflike in places as often seen for the issue. A few subtle planchet adjustment marks are noted at the bottom of the shield, evidence that each planchet was carefully weighed and adjusted if necessary to the narrow tolerance required. A few additional scattered marks are seen though none are of recent origin or overly deep. Sharply struck for the date with full design elements present on both sides. An altogether pleasing example of the only die pairing for the date; the Bass-Dannreuther reference suggests perhaps 200 to 300 examples of the issue are known, a figure that includes coins VG and finer, and many with impairments and damage. An exceptional coin for an early gold type set or specialized early eagle cabinet. Early die state with thin cracks through LIBERTY. Accompanied with original paper envelope of purchase from A. Kosoff, Encino, CA. as "GEM UNC $550. 9/5/62."(PCGS 8563)
