W-5795, Breen-990, considered to be Rarity-6+.

A highlight of this list (or any other list for that matter), this is one of the most sought after and desirable issues in the American colonial series.

With the charming obverse Indian surrounded by the Latin legend LIBER NATUS LIBERTATEM DEFENDO (translated as Born Free I Defend Freedom) here mated to the New York Arms reverse with the state motto EXCELSIOR (Ever Higher).

And while many of the surviving specimens exhibit a rough planchet and/or evidence of 230+ years of tough life, this is choice, all original medium brown AU example that ranks high in the condition census for this issue.

Ex Stack’s May 2004 sale of the Ford Collection, Part II, lot #312; earlier F.C.C. Boyd.
