PCGS AU-55.  Ex - Ira & Larry Goldberg Coins & Collectibles, Inc.'s "Pre-Long Beach Sale", September 23 & 24, 2002, Lot 64, illustrated, where it was described as follows: "92.0 grains. PCGS graded AU-55. One of the finest graded of this variety, this one with dark brown toning on both sides and generally problem free. We do note the surfaces are slightly rough on both sides, and there is some raised red patina on the upper reverse. Sharply impressed by the dies, and this variety is much scarcer than the Miller 6.1 laughing head variety."
