Plenty of detail for the grade and struck on a mostly problem-free planchet. Attractive antique toning deepening at the borders and on the reverse. What more could the student of early American coinage ask for? Pop 6; 11 finer.</B> <BR><BR>As the numerals in the date bear a close relationship to those used in 1797, this obverse die is believed to be the final die cut in the 1796 year. Further, the lower right tip of R in LIBERTY is broken; the latest state of any of the four 1796 obverses. <BR>Estimated Value $7,000 - 8,000.
