Noe-11, W-760, Salmon 9-F variety, No H in MASATUSETS Redbook type. Considered to be Rarity-4 as a variety, but quite tough as a type with a Redbook value considerably higher than the ‘regular’ issue.
And this is the undisputed finest known example of this issue, with superb, crisp detail, lovely lustrous surfaces and old silvery blue and pale golden toning on a gigantic, all but pristine planchet.
With a fantastic provenance as well, having graced some of the finest collections of Massachusetts silver coins for well over 100 years.
