This is an early striking for the 1827/6 O-102 die marriage, the obverse milling still quite sharp and the star points only just beginning to draw toward the border. Beautiful satin to softly frosted luster is overall brilliant on the obverse and adorned with pretty pinkish-apricot iridescence on the reverse. Similar color is also evident on the former side, but only really at and near the upper border. Crisply delineated in virtually all areas, and devoid of all but a few extremely minor handling marks. This newcomer joins a few other MS-64s for Condition Census #4 standing for the die variety.
