Back in 1955 the auction cataloguer wrote: "Brilliant 'gem' Uncirculated. A magnificent coin, nicely struck, with full, complete mint luster and color. To our minds, unimprovable. Not in the DuPont sale in any condition. Nearly two years ago, two examples in the Dallas Convention sale brought $190 and $200. This piece should realize close to $300 today." [Realized $275.]"


Superbly struck with full luster and color, this coin is also CAC endorsed. Norweb purchased this coin in 1955 at auction from Dr. Clarence W. Peake, it was then sold to Dr. Peter Shireman who then consigned it at Heritage in 2016, then to our cosigner. An overall classy example with everything going for it.
The Heritage consigner wrote: This impressive Superb Gem exhibits frosty luster that is undiminished beneath the lovely sea-green, gold, and iridescent toning on both sides. The pristine surfaces are virtually perfect and abrasion-free with a fully original appearance. There is no doubt that this coin looks the same today as it did 60 years ago when New Netherlands described the coin as "unimprovable."
