    Julian PE-3a. Choice About Uncirculated. Attractive chestnut brown surfaces, with some underlying luster; some scattered light contact marks. A charming piece featuring exceptional relief. A brief series somewhat serving as an analog to the British Art Union series, only two other types were produced–honoring Gilbert Stuart and John Trumbull; this particular type features a mintage of just 200 pieces. Very rare.
