Significant examples:
PCGS Proof-62 (illustrated above).  Ex - Superior Galleries' "Pre-Long Beach Sale", October 1-3, 2000, Lot 4420, where it was described as follows:  "Judd-588, Pollock-653. Rarity-8. Nickel or silver-nickel alloy. Reeded Edge. Population: 1, with 0 higher. Regular dies trial struck in off-metal, possibly nickel or silver-nickel composition. Pollock was able to trace three specimens, two of which were in the Farouk collection (lot 1809) but graded only Extremely Fine. The other, Dunham-Mehl Olsen, 11/44:290 may be this specimen. A great opportunity for the Pattern collector to own a seldom-seen rarity! (PCGS holder 1560270) May be the finest known."
