NGC Graded Higher:
In 1879, the Scottish writer Robert Louis Stevenson left his home country for San Francisco. Stevenson had learned that his ex-lover Fanny Osbourne was ill. Osbourne had moved to San Francisco with her husband but neither the distance nor her marital status would keep Stevenson from travelling to her to ask her hand in marriage. The “Treasure Island” author’s plans worked and the two were married in 1880. This 1879 nickel recalls Robert Louis Stevenson’s journey to California.
