Mottled champagne-apricot and powder-blue iridescence adorns the surfaces but leaves considerable areas of brilliance on both sides. Advanced peripheral die cracks (as struck) and soft detail here and there at the borders confirm the late die state of this popular overdate from the early Capped Bust Half series. We also see light clashmarks (again, as made) in the fields around the central devices.
