Lot Description
Flashy and bright with the fields showing a degree of reflectivity while the devices are more satiny. Bright silver dominates both sides save for a dash of deep russet-gray splashed around parts of the obverse periphery while the reverse has a blush of light russet around that rim. Sharply struck on all the devices and a middle die state where the cracks on the reverse have formed but are not thick. Impressive quality for the date or variety collector and a coin which scarcely circulated at all before being saved.
