This handsome specimen is attractively toned in gold, blue, jade, and lilac. The strike is very slightly off center with the result that the dentils are especially well defined at 6:00 on the obverse and 12:00 on the reverse. Close examination reveals some old toned-over scratches at BER in LIBERTY. The old style PCGS insert carries coin # 6852, which is now reserved for the Three Leaves <em>Guide Book </em>variety of the 1795 Flowing Hair silver dollar.
