This is a scarce issue overall, there being only two die marriages that are rated R3 and R4 on the numismatic rarity scale. The present O-101 example is generally untoned with silver-gray surfaces on both sides. An uneven strike is typical of the date, and an intermingling of moderate wear has entered some softly defined areas to the design. Most major features remaining boldly outlined, at least, and although quite scuffy neither side reveals any individually distracting abrasions.
