Medellin, Colombia, 5 pesos, 1921-A (Antioquia), encapsulated NGC MS-62, rare. Sedwick-53. Restrepo-454. KM-201.1. Lustrous and choice (the reverse rim maybe a tiny bit crude), in beautiful butter-yellow gold, finest known graded by NGC, and an acknowledged rarity of which Frank's notes say "less than 100 coined, less than 10 known"; word on the street, however, has it that 13 specimens residing in the Banco de Venezuela were released in 1990, and probably at least a dozen more exist in private hands (just not as nice as this one!).
