"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."
