This die variety is scarcer than generally known and is difficult to find at this grade level or finer. The obverse and reverse are toned a rather deep russet-gray with blue and gold highlights. The strike is sharp on Liberty's hair and the surrounding stars, as well as on the eagle and stars on the reverse. There are a few tiny patches of roughness in the planchet, as made, from minor impurities in the silver bullion, and these will serve to hallmark this coin. The excellent surface quality keeps the eye appeal high.
