    Ron, This is the Garrett coin. I purchased it from the person who bought it from the Garrett sale and sold it to Les Fox in 1987. He put it in his Amazing Gold Rarities sale that I cataloged for Stack’s in 1988. The Elisaberg coin and the Bass coin (ex1976 ANA sale) are the two best business strikes and there is also the Virgil Brand one sided-proof now in the Bass reference collection. The Elisberg coin is definitely the finest overall quality.
