Jim B. writes: In the Red Book, it says the 1841-O $5 Gold Piece is not known an any collections, while the Black book says two specimens are known. Why are there 2 different reports? Which is right? And if the Red book is right, why would the Black book say there is 2 specimens? Please Help..Thanks.
There were 50 struck. There has never been a report of someone actually finding them in a collection. The Black book speculates that 2 may have been seen (like the Loch Ness monster).
