Ex - Louis Ullian - Superior Galleries' "Pre-Long Beach Sale", June 5-7, 2000, Lot
it was described as follows: "MS60 Lustrous bluish steel brown with 15% of
the original mint red remaining. Would grade slightly higher but
there is a dark stain right of star 9. The only contact marks are a
tiny, very light hairline scratch over star 1 and a couple
microscopic hairlines on the chin and neck. M-LDS with a fine die
crack from the dentils under star 1 up toward, but not reaching, the
throat. (The LDS has this crack heavy and extending to star 8.) The
cracked die states of N-7 are very rare. Tied for CC#6 of the
variety but this is CC#1 of the M-LDS."
