Metcalf CLC pg. 130, pl. 3, 1-2 (similar dies); Metcalf CCLE 671; CCS pg. 278, 39; Slocum 601 (different dies).

Very rare and seldom offered.

The dies appear to be very close to those in Metcalf's corpus, but not exactly the same. The obverse is possibly the same as Slocum 601, but in a different die state.
