It is a rare date, mintage of only 3,000 pieces. Standard catalog lists it at around $350. But it bothers me a little that the obv is a lower grade then the reverse. There have been a lot of fakes coming out of China. I would want to check at least the weight and specific gravity. It is supposed to weigh 19.99 grams and I would make a slight allowance for wear but not more than .15 grams. The specific gravity should be 10.34


It looks good and the color seems right from the photo but I would be reluctant to give it an all clear just from photos.
