Toned a rather deep lilac-gray with flashes of crimson and blue when examined under a light. The strike is sharp for this later die state, as extensive die rust in the form of lumps are present, along with die cracks on the obverse. This is the latest die state known, which adds further collector interest. Bold hair definition despite the late die state, and the stars over the eagle are sharp too. An impressive example that is close to the Condition Census for the variety. Identifiable by a nearly vertical nick on Liberty's curl below her ear.
