Condition Census for the Die Marriage
Possibly the Finest Known

Product Description


This is an exceptionally attractive example of very rare die marriage, and is likely the finest known. This was one of the last coins Warren Miller purchased for his collection of all 118 known die marriages (at the time). It was a significant upgrade from the specimen he had in his collection for years. It is ex. David Queller and Dr. Robert Hesselgesser Collections, and was originally from the L. W. Hoffecker Collection (Superior Galleries, February 1987).

Multiple examples of this die marriage have traded hands for prices in the $25-30,000 range in the last three years, inlcuding this one.
