The certified population is even hearty in Mint State 66, with Professional Coin Grading Service grading more than 1,000 examples. With 127 PCGS MS-67 survivors somewhat satisfying collector demand, these sell for under $300 at auction.

The 19 PCGS MS-67+ representatives bring more than $1,000 when offered, and there are just four in MS-68 that share the title as the finest certified at PCGS.
One of these, carrying a green Certified Acceptance Corp. sticker recognizing quality within the grade, sold for $9,407.25 at a Dec. 16, 2018, GreatCollections auction. It had blazing luster and just a bit of golden color hugging the rims.
The last PCGS MS-68 example offered at auction was in 2013, when Heritage sold one with heavier toning, also with a CAC sticker, for $11,162.50. Then it was one of just two certified in the grade, and the past five years have seen two additional examples graded MS-68 by PCGS.
