UNC   NGC   Colorful toning. Obverse 'cleaned' Top graded coin at NGC is AU55. Very difficult to find in this state of preservation. Ex Leipziger Munzhandlung Auction 77; Lot 786 Apr. 2013 (660 Euros). Later sold raw on ebay for $1025 Aug. 2014.
This piece displays a significant amount of coarse die polishing lines in the obverse fields. It is possible this has caused a strange appearance to the lustre in the fields which NGC has interpreted as cleaning. The piece exhibits quite a bit of originality and we can find no hairlines from cleaning on it. The reverse has a more typical cartwheel lustre as well as a lack of coarse die polishing lines.
