Ryder 11-E, W-6300 variety, considered to be Rarity-4- as an issue, but more like R-7 in the lofty condition seen here.
A top-notch example of this issue, this piece has been off the market for years and apparently does not appear on the census listings of this variety.
Indeed, none other than Q. David Bowers describes this issue in the Whitman Encyclopedia as follows: "Rare above Extremely Fine. Ford’s was About Uncirculated. None known in Mint State."
The aforementioned Ford coin, described in Stack’s October 2004 Ford V catalog as "AU" but with "areas of light corrosion visible", realized $5,175 nearly eight years ago.
The present specimen is materially finer, with rich brown color, smooth, problem free surfaces and just the lightest cabinet friction on the high points.
