A delightful coin for the strong lustre and clean surfaces. Mostly white in color although framed with delicate gold near the rims. The strike is bold throughout and the rims are clean. Identifiable by a tiny tick on Liberty's jaw, another on her left hand, and the reverse has a single diagonal bagmark behind the eagle's head. Examination will find hints of circular die polishing lines on Liberty's chest and dress, and there is a small struck through area below the left claw of the eagle. An impressive coin for the grade.
