Extremely Rare 1962 Salada-Junket Coin #113 Ed Bailey - "C Level with Ear" Variation - Highest Graded!

Starting Bid - $400, Sold For - $5,700

Graded NM-MT 8 by PSA. One of only two examples graded at this level with none higher! Bright, fresh, and clean, both front and back. The extremely scarce 1962 Salada-Junket Coin of Ed Bailey "C Level with Ear” variation is one of the three ultra rare variations in the 1962 Salada-Junket Coins set which appear on virtually every Salada Coins want list and since 1962 have kept almost all collectors from ever completing their sets. Bailey’s Salada Coin normally features the "C" for his position (catcher) positioned in line with his neck and his last name level with his ear. Salada changed the positioning of his name and position on his coin, but the print run for the position-change coin was obviously extremely low. PSA has graded only nine examples of this ultra rare variation out of a total of 12,602 coins evaluated to date. We have never even handled a single example of this variation! Two other coins in the Salada Coins set, Williams (name on right variation) and Brandt (Orioles), share this same degree of extreme rarity due to a similar typographic change in the Salada set. Incredibly, we are offering all three coins in this auction. Each comes to us from an extremely advanced old-time collection. This is a very highly graded example of one of the great rarities of the Salada-Junket Coins set. Reserve $400. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $5,700
