This specimen was lot 20582 in Heritage sale 3008 (New York, January 2010), where it sold for $1,092.50. The catalog description noted, "George V Cent 1928, MS65 Red ICCS. Near-flawless surfaces with sharply struck features and attractive crimson color. None have been certified finer by ICCS (4/0)."
