Breen-1140, W-1735 variety, No Wreath type. Struck in Pewter. Considered to be Rarity-7.
Finest example we’ve seen of this extremely rare Pewter, No Wreath type, with lovely, original silver gray color, a sharp, even strike and none of the tin pesting which typically plagues this series.
Impressive provenance too!
