This is my benchmark coin for this issue! Pedigree is the Daniel Ching Sale (06/91) Lot # 905. While minor varieties of this issue are difficult to attribute based upon the photos & descriptions in KM this coin conforms to Y# 512.1. Large Stars flanking date on the reverse, hammer handle is across lower leg of star on the obverse. D. Ching described it as: "Nice XF, traces of lustre, exceptional grade for type." With this coin I'm able to compare my other examples for authenticity, etc.
Please compare this with the other SSS 500 Cash examples. I have 14 examples of these and probably 10 of them are Y512.1 - and other examples that conform to Y 512 & Y512.2 with another ambiguously leaning to Y 512. So with that anecdotal evidence one might draw some idea of relative scarcity that does not conform to KM (Krause-Mishler SCWC).
