NGC AU-55 (illustrated above).  Ex - Early American History Auctions, Inc.'s Mail Bid Sale, October 14, 2000, Lot 1148, where it was described as follows: "Struck in bright, green-colored gold, with hints of coppery toning on both sides. The strike is decidedly above-average, with little of the weakness for which these shallow relief dies are famous. Apart from a small mark on Liberty’s cheek, the surfaces are clean and well-preserved. Clark, Gruber & Co. operated out of Denver, Colorado and were fairly prolific producers of gold coins, including the 1860 issues with Pike’s Peak on the obverse. A nice piece from this popular Colorado territorial gold coiner."
