Notes:
The finest Uncirculated examples graded by PCGS are 16 MS-67's, 5 MS-66 Prooflikes, and 9 MS-65 Deep Mirror Prooflikes.

Proof examples of this date are rather difficult to locate in Gem Proof, although PR-67s are among the more "common" of the series.  In fact, PCGS has certified 11 PR-67's, but none finer. The finest Proof Cameo and Proof Deep Cameo examples graded by PCGS is a single PRCA-68 and 2 PRDC-65s, respectively.
