An exceptional coin that boasts all the features a collector hopes to find in an early Half Cent. The color is light brown throughout with traces of tan and blue. The strike is full for this later die state of the obverse. Well centered on the planchet, with strong doubling noted on Liberty's profile and primary hair curl below her ear, a feature sometimes seen on this die pairing. The reverse die was rotated about 70 degrees clockwise. Noticeable die rust is found within Liberty's curls, however the surfaces are remarkably smooth for a coin of this very rare issue. In fact, this beauty is easily among the top dozen known of this variety! A foremost example of this die pairing which has been off the market for at least two generations.
