Lumps are noted on Liberty's cap, and there is die rust on some of the stars on the right. The date and right arrow are weak, probably due to die lapping. Toned with deep blue and gold on the obverse, the center bright white with the reverse with light gold around the edge, and mostly white. A rare coin in or approaching mint state, and expect a battle when this sparkling little jewel crosses the block. <BR>Estimated Value $150 - 200. <I><BR>From the Benson collection and purchased directly from Numismatic Gallery's sale of the "World's Greatest Collection" May 11, 1945, with envelope included from that sale.</I>
