Noe-17, W-840, Salmon 3-B variety, Small Planchet type. Considered to be Rarity-3.
Among the highest graded examples of this variety to come to market in recent years, this example has a pedigree which can be traced to Stack’s 1974 sale of the Donald Groves Collection where it was described as “The finest Noe 17 that we can recall having seen or handled. Uncirculated.”
To which we would only add that this is a totally original coin with old toning in the devices and is one of the very few Small Planchet Pine Trees of any variety ever graded at this lofty level.
Ex Stack’s-Bowers March 2015 sale of the Kendall Collection, lot #2399; earlier Stack’s November 1974 sale of the Donald Groves Collection, as noted, lot 294.
