Mostly untoned with some minor roughness or granularity on the neck and bust, extending out into the fields. A choice specimen of this variety. <BR><BR>Due to unsatisfactory impressing of the eagle punch in the working die, specimens of 1796 BB-61 are not as well defined on the reverse as are most others of this general design type. Even AU and Mint State coins are apt to have the feathers appear "fuzzy" or indistinct. In worn grades the lack of detail on the eagle's breast feathers is even more apparent. <BR>Estimated Value $7,500 - 8,500.
