Ex. Jimmy Hayes Collection, Stacks, October 1985, lot 62, where it was described: “Extremely Rare 1853 Arrows and Rays. Another one-year-only-type. Choice Brilliant Proof. The obverse with full deep mirror surface, the reverse lacking in depth, undoubtedly due to the rays. Virtually a twin to the Lenox Lohr example we sold in 1956 and the Hawn piece we sold in 1973 (toning about the edges). Light golden toning and exceptionally attractive.
