Bright silver with residual luster in the fields blends combines with patches of russet-gold on the obverse and reverse. The strike is decent as Liberty shows strong hair definition and the eagle has ample strength in the fine feather detail of his open wings. There are some ancient adjustment marks down Liberty's head and a few slide lines on her profile. This is a tough type coin to find in this high of grade, and most 1795 half dollars circulated well beyond the grade earned here.
