Miller 12.2-C, W-4525 variety, Mailed Bust Left type.  Considered to be Rarity-5.

Simply an incredible piece, with superb surfaces, frosty original luster, mint red lingering in the devices and razor sharp detail we’ve not encountered before on a coin in this series.

And apparently prominent old-time colonial dealer Richard Picker agreed, based on this description in the Garret catalog:

A truly superb coin.  Neither Richard Picker or ourselves have ever seen an equal to this piece, a coin which must surely rank with the finest of its type.”

Ho hum, just another typical day at CRO.

Ex Bower’s October 1980 sale of the Garrett Collection, lot #1377; earlier from the collection of Col. James Ellsworth.

This coin is from the CRO archives and is not currently available for sale.
