Though crudely made, this coin exhibits very little actual wear in our opinion and, other than some lovely original toning acquired over the subsequent centuries, probably looks much as it did when first minted.
Ex Stack’s October 2005 sale of the John Ford, Jr. Collection, lot #56, where it realized $27,600.
