Significant examples:
1. PCGS Proof-64 (illustrated above).  Ex - Ira & Larry Goldberg Coins & Collectibles, Inc.'s "The California Sale", October 2-3, 2000, Lot 593, where it was described (in part) as follows:  "We note the mirror fields are especially watery and reflective, and the coin has very little toning save for an arc around the periphery of gold. Frosted on the devices, and exceptional for the grade. One of the very popular, and rare, Standard Silver issues. Only 2 so graded by PCGS in this grade, with a single coin graded higher."
