Nickel J1067A/P1203. which is unique and was originally in the Judson Brenner collection and was displayed at the 1914 ANS exhibition to Virgil Brand in 1919 (journal #92500:1186a), Armin Brand as the piece first appears in a 10/27/36 consignment to B.G. Johnson. The weakly struck piece illustrated below from a circa 1911 photograph by Edgar Adams? appears to match the coin on NGC's website.



It was later offered for $40 in some 1945 B.G. Johnson invoices to Brandts (Celina Coin Shop) and Abe Kosoff per the Newman Numismatic Portal as shown below.



The piece found its way into the 1954 Farouk sale and was unseen for over 67 years until it appeared in the GreatCollections.com 6/20/21 sale as NGC60. NGC's website notes the coin as 70% copper and 30% nickel.
