Mail Bid Sale, April 19, 2003, Lot 1079, where it was described (in part) as follows: "...Glossy, reddish-brown with lighter tan high points. In terms of detail, this piece compares favorably with the GUIDEBOOK plate coin, presumably one of the best they could find to illustrate the variety. Overall, this piece appears finer but has some old surface scratches on the obverse, a shallow depression at the base of the bust (as made), and another at the top right of the reverse (possibly as made)..."
