Beutiful original toning with grey and blue colors, the iridescent accents at the rims giving it an especially attractive appearance. Pop 13; 21 finer at PCGS.</B> Adding to those results, a word about strike: this piece has all but needle-sharp devices, with gorgeous detail on the hair and "lovelock" curl at the neck, nearly complete set of stars, outstanding wing and breast detail on the eagle, plus nice leaves in the two halves of the wreath (laurel on the left, palm branch on the right). The small blob of metal at IC of AMERICA is diagnostic of this reverse die and caused by breakage at this point in the steel die (PCGS # 6861) </B>. <BR>Estimated Value $8,000 - 9,000.
