The error has resulted in an extra lip of flan along the right-obverse and -reverse borders. Even so, all major devices are present and actually sharp-to-full in strike. Virtually brilliant on the obverse, the reverse is awash in lovely rose-gray patina. Major Mint errors of any kind are quite scarce in the Barber Dime series of 1892-1916.
