Well struck and moderately toned with golden-gray, russet, and soft blue hues. Strong luster flows in the face and around the rims are typical of the Three Legged Mint States. These were struck using pretty worn dies and not new dies which would have imparted more evenly flowing surface luster and color. A popular semi-key date, much talked about in the collector community.
