We note that this exact piece realized $1006 including the Buyer's premium at public auction in September, 2012. Formerly graded MS66 by PCGS and described by Heritage as follows: "a superlative coin in terms of its preservation, boldly detailed with a crisp portrait and every tiny detail of the shield showing, undisturbed rich satiny luster, and gorgeous pastel silvery magenta-gold and blue iridescent toning. As wonderful as this shilling is visually, its most enchanting feature is what appears to be an uncatalogued overdate, with part of an 8 showing to the right of the 7 in the date. Overdate or not, this is a gorgeous coin! Candidate for a finest known Registry Set?"
