Recent appearances:
PCGS EF-40 (illustrated above).  Ex - Early American History Auctions, Inc.'s Mail Bid Sale, October 14, 2000, Lot 991, "134.2 grains. Rarity 4 (Very Scarce). A lovely coin with chestnut fields and lighter tan high points. The obverse shows some faint clash marks from the reverse, most noticeably the tiny tree held by the seated figure on the reverse. Some wear lines are also noted near the rims on the reverse and a small fissure is well hidden on the lower right side, as well. All in all, this is one of the better known examples of this scarcer variety."

"Choice Extremely Fine" (illustrated below).  Ex - Early American History Auctions, Inc. Mail Bid Sale, April 20, 2002, Lot 938, illustrated, where it was described (in part) as follows: "...127.0 grains...This is only the third example of this variety that we have handled over the past five years and this is by far the finest (even better than the PCGS EF-40 we offered in our October 2000 Mail Bid Sale). The surfaces are nice and smooth and show no roughness other than what was in the die. More importantly, the planchet is perfect and the centering is right-on, giving the buyer a full, clear date. Struck from a late state of the dies, with buckling visible in the fields on both sides.
