Significant examples:
PCGS VF-20 (illustrated above).  Ex - Paul Arthur Norris - Ira & Larry Goldberg Coins & Collectibles, Inc.'s "Pre-Long Beach Sale", September 23 & 24, 2002, Lot 30, illustrated, where it was described as follows: "PCGS graded VF-20. Medium chocolate brown in color with very pleasing surfaces that show smooth, even wear on the obverse. On the reverse, the central lettering is very weak with portions illegible, but the all important O/ERS and the date visible with a glass. One tiny mark located above the(OR)S will help to identify this specimen and another similar mark is located near the rim to the right of GOD. Long called a low rarity-6, and while not on par with some of the finer examples known (Norweb, Picker, Garrett) certainly a worthy coin in its own right. PCGS has only graded 4 examples of this variety, all between the grades of VG-VF."
