A rare coin in gem grades, and the mintmark above variation is quite a bit scarcer than the mintmark below reverse. The strike is incredible for astute numismatist, with strong definition on Liberty's hair, dress as well as the wreath—despite several light die cracks from the rim to the leaves. Delightful toning of rose-russet and gunmetal blue with tinges of colorful iridescence mixed into the fields.
