Comments:
1. Only 7 have been reported - Jeff Oxman's discovery piece (although Jeff is not listed as the finder), a cleaned AU/XF coin in a net graded ANACS holder, a raw coin found by C. Logan McKechnie in 2005 and was then graded AU58 PL by ANACS and later crossed to a PCGS AU58 [The coin is in the 'California' collection and expected to remain there.] and an NGC AU58 (now PCGS AU58) found in an old coin album by Dwight Brown (July, 2007). The fifth was reported on VAMWorld by remmy (July, 2013). It appears to be BU. The sixth found raw (June, 2014) now in PCGS 63. The 7th one was found by PacificWR at a B&M coin gallery on 9/3/2020 and will be sent in to be graded at PCGS.
