PCGS MS-64 (illustrated above).  Ex - Superior Galleries' "Pre-Long Beach Sale", October 1-3, 2000, Lot 1050, where it was described as follows: "Newman 11-B Rarity-4 PCGS Mint State-64 Brown. Lustrous bluish steel brown with hints of faded mint red in protected areas of the obverse. Free of any signs of contact or the planchet fissures that are often found on these early coppers. Both sides show strong die clashmarks, especially the obverse. Sharply struck. A choice example of our earliest Federal coinage. Most likely from the Bank of New York Hoard where about 60 of this variety were discovered."
