This one has beautiful color from many years of being stored in an album, with a colorful ring of yellow and green through the stars. As to the balance of the coin, it is dark to medium gray in color on the obverse, a bit lighter and more silvery gray on the reverse. Well struck save for the area at the bust tip where adjustment marks are located, this lack of silver caused OF on the reverse to be weak too. Bold on the eagle's breast, with most of the feathers in attendance still. The familiar die chip has just started to form on this one (located in the hair near the ribbon), and that makes this a very early die state. <BR>Estimated Value $8,000 - 12,000.
