Attractive gunmetal-gray fields and devices with lighter silver on the high points of the design from brief circulation. The strike is average for this early half dollar variety. There is die clashing in the fields, especially Liberty's lips are impressed into the die steel below the right wing of the eagle. No rim problems or adjustment marks are seen, and the fields and devices are generally pleasing. Although the Overton-110 variety is plentiful, demand for any of these early Flowing Hair half dollars is strong when found in grades above Fine.
