Recent appearances:
PCGS EF-40 (illustrated above).  Ex - Early American History Auctions, Inc.'s Mail Bid Sale, October 14, 2000, Lot 1038, where it was described as follows: "150.5 grains. Rarity 8 in this grade (according to Kessler). Attractive, light brown surfaces. Softly struck on a blank that had some very light fissures before it was struck. Somewhat weak on the lower right obverse and corresponding area on the reverse. The only better example we’ve seen is a PCGS XF-45 we sold in our March 1998 sale (and that’s long gone)."
