This important coin is the Finest Known example of this die marriage by far. It is one of only six examples known to me for this die marriage, and is the only specimen known that is graded by PCGS. All of the other known specimens are damaged. [The Reiver Specimen (another) Countermarked listed in the second edition of the Bowers book is the 1795 B-1, BB-21 die marriage, NOT 1795 B-8, BB-15.]
Ex. World's Greatest Collection (F.C.C. Boyd); Adolph Friedman; Bolender and Bolender Plate coin in all five editions of Bolender's book; K. P. Austin; Ostheimer Collection; Roland H. Willasch; James Matthews; to Warren Miller privately via W. David Perkins for a six figure price many years ago.
