Light even toning in shades of medium gray to medium brown, deepest at the rims. Lack of detail in the hair is almost diagnostic of BB-21 (and BB-27) since the head of Liberty was punched deeply into the die, resulting in quick wear once the coin got into circulation. This variety has a small raised "bar" just to the right of the 4th star and is not to be confused with BB-27 which has a longer raised bar close to the top curl. Not scarce, but therefore ideal for a Type set since it carries no extra rarity premium. Pop 4; 8 finer for the variety at NGC.</B> <BR>Estimated Value $10,000 - 12,000.
