Ex Howard R. Newcomb (privately) - consignment “Jolip”, Stack’s 10/1956, lot 5 - Lester Merkin - C. Douglas Smith - Gordon Wrubel 12/1975 - Denis Loring 7/1981 - John G. Wood, Bowers & Ruddy Rare Coin Review #41, 11/1981 - Bowers & Ruddy Rare Coin Review #44, 6/1982 - Bowers & Ruddy Rare Coin Review #45, 8/1982.

A recently “rediscovered” example that had been missing in action since 1982. Sharp and attractive, this should easily rank among the best 10 of the variety and is listed 7th on Al Boka’s website. Glossy deep brown with some tan and reddish hues. Only light wear and traces of luster remain, particularly on the reverse. Short scratch on the cheek, which looks worse in our photo than it does in hand, otherwise choice. A keeper for sure.
