Bid Sale, April 20, 2002, Lot 985, where it was described (in
part) as follows: "Dark brown surfaces,
with lighter legends and devices. The surfaces show a subtle, uniform
porosity that has been softened by subsequent wear. A natural planchet
void affects the top of the obverse. This piece easily bests the only two
other examples we've offered in the past six years."
