Pearl-gray iridescence in the central areas deepens to violet at the borders. The die states of both obverse and reverse are advanced, with prominent cracks beneath the date and a large retained cud at the reverse arrow feathers. This die state is approximately equal to that of the piece illustrated on p. 184 of Q. David Bowers' newly published <strong><em>Encyclopedia of United States Silver Dollars 1794-1804</em></strong>.
