Grease-Filled Dies (Not on slab). PCGS failed to note (or take note of) the mint error, causing them to completely miss the grade of this coin. And, we always like to offer you the PQ coin before having it re-graded, so here it is! The well-struck central designs look choice XF. Satiny mint bloom rolls over the flatly made peripheral parts of the devices, with only light actual wear spots on the highest tips of the design.
This piece was struck from grease-filled dies, causing not only the flatness around the extremities of the design, but also the complete loss of the last three stars on the obverse; and the upper part of AMERICA on the reverse. Typically, a piece with such loss of detail would be eligible for a Mint Error designation. And the surfaces are crusty and richly toned in olive green and tan hues, with gorgeous pastel iridescent toning dancing over the luster when tilted into the light.
A very unusual and very cool, home run piece for the advanced collector who has everything else! Looking for something out of the ordinary? We scrutinize thousands of PCGS and NGC slabs to provide you with coins that are truly special, and we do it with fast, knowledgeable, and courteous service. Whether you are seeking beautiful color, an exceptional strike; or maybe proof-like luster, a rare die variety, or even CAC verification; we have something for everyone.
