No. 8b Grant

Classed as Extremely Fine to About Uncirculated. Original shank. Harold rated this higher than Mr. Hodder.

Variations of this pattern are close-spaced, medium spaced and wide-spaced rays and 31, 32 and 33 punchmarks in the border.

This specimen has 32 punchmarks and close spaced rays.

It's also perhaps the only "mint"/near proof condition GW known. It was found in an old salve box wrapped in very old black tissue paper, and had a white Masonic ribbon through the shank.

Purchased in 1959 from C.A. Means (Bronson)
