The fields are reflective and slightly prooflike and the devices show considerable mint frost. Outstanding surface quality too, with no bumps or scrapes that impair the eye appeal, and no adjustment marks are present. Exceptional hair definition on Liberty and the eagle's tiny breast feathers are sharp too, and both show a mere whisper of wear on the uppermost points, as the strike is bold throughout. The reverse die was rotated slightly ten to fifteen degrees counter clockwise when struck. Although this die pairing is plentiful, there certainly are not many that retain this lofty grade and considerable eye appeal, hence this coin comes highly recommended for either type or variety specialists.
