Comment: This coin was the “finest seen” by Davis et al and it is the plate coin in EUSD. Though their toning patterns do not match, this coin and the NGC MS65 listed above share enough similarities that I believe they are the same coin. Can anyone provide any insight?

Comment: I was not able to match this coin to any of the others listed above, but it is hard for me to believe that it has not shown up on the market again since then. Does anyone have any insight on this one?
