Notes:     NAC Sale 61, Lot 199. Extremely rare, only twenty-one specimens known, of which only five are in private hands. Minor marks, otherwise very fine Ex Glendinings 7 July 1971, 146 and Triton III, 1999, 812 sales. Exchange from Richard Schaefer in December 1990. All of the Mars/Eagle 60 as issues with symbols are rare, and some extremely rare. In 1990 I obtained this example, with anchor symbol, from Richard Schaefer, in exchange for some Republican bronzes which he lacked. In the sale of my Republican gold in Triton III it did not reach its reserve, and is accordingly offered here. (RBW Collection)
