Significant examples:
1. NGC Proof-67 (illustrated above).  Ex - Ira & Larry Goldberg Coins & Collectibles, Inc.'s "The California Sale", October 2-3, 2000, Lot 596, where it was described (in part) as follows:  "This is far and away the finest graded of this extremely rare pattern issue. Only 4 have been seen by the services, one graded PR 64 by PCGS, followed by two graded PR 65 by PCGS, and this piece, the only coin of this variety graded by NGC at PR 67. Liberty is seated with a pole and cap extended, behind her are two flags and a globe with "LIBERTY" boldly engraved. The reverse is the regular issue used on current coinage of the time...Mint fresh and untoned, with excellent mirroring in the fields and deeply frosted devices."
