Attractive lilac-gray toning over lustrous fields for the obverse and reverse. The strike is sharp as the stars and clouds are well brought up over the eagle, and Liberty's hair shows the finer and seldom seen details behind her temple. No rim marks or detracting bumps are present, keeping the eye appeal high for this scarce and popular variety. This example is tied with a few others as the third or fourth finest of this die pairing, and a solid collector coin for its surface quality and high technical grade.
