AU-58.  Ex - Superior Galleries' "Pre-Long Beach Sale", October 1-3, 2000, Lot 1051, where it was described as follows: "Newman 13-X Rarity-1 AU58. STATES UNITED with Pointed Rays variety. Sharpness mint state but there are two spots of reddish chocolate toning on the left side of the reverse, and these spots are very slightly rough. The planchet is mostly smooth, but there is a thin fissure over MIND, a couple tiny chips out of the rim left of the sun, and a very thin horizontal fissure across the reverse, all as struck. (Finding a 13-X without some planchet fissures is a difficult task.) Glossy light olive brown and chocolate with peeps of faded mint red in protected areas of the obverse. Most likely from the Bank of New York Hoard of Uncirculated Fugio cents discussed on page 147 of Breen's encyclopedia. Weight 171.8 grains."
