The key date to the series and high grade examples are missing from most collections. Toned with a mix of mottled dark brown to tawny-tan. The strike is average as minor softness is found on the lower portion of the obverse and feather tips, common to this issue. Minor nicks from brief circulation, but on balance more than desirable if a high grade example of this key date is desired.
