A glorious example of this final year of issue for the Draped Bust, Heraldic Eagle type, with abundant mint bloom and strong lustre in the fields. Toned with rich yellow-russet on both sides, and framed with splashes of vibrant blue and red on the obverse, less so around the reverse rim. Examination will discover the most minor of surface marks and a nearly vertical nick below Liberty's hair ribbon in the field. This later die state shows cracks through the date and stars on the obverse, the reverse with cracks on the left side of the legend, and clashed from Liberty's bust in the star field above the eagle near OF. A hint of adjustment marks are found atop the reverse stars and eagle's head, and the strike is soft on those devices, as usual for this later die state. A simply stunning coin which any collector will long cherish.

Ex Louis Engel Collection (Stack's, January 1970, lot 280).
