"From the Heritage Catalog Description ……..

Heritage’s Platinum Night event took place on April 28 at CSNS in Chicago. This coin, Lot# 4571 realized $998,750. (All prices include Buyer’s Premium)

In contrast to the 1792 half disme, there is little in the historical record that directly addresses the disme of the same year. Only three examples are known to collectors today, with two specimens struck on a normal flan and another on a thick planchet, with the date effaced. The present coin is by far the finest-known example, having graced the fabulous collections of Dr. J. Hewitt Judd and Donald G. Partrick. Heritage Auctions is privileged to offer this classic pattern rarity in just its second auction appearance." ... 1-million/
