This richly toned Choice VF exhibits otherwise dominant copper-gray patina that does lighten a bit over the highpoints of the design. Those are the features over which most of the wear is concentrated, which means that ample boldness of detail is noted in the more protected areas of the design. A couple of minor rim bruises and surface nicks aside, this early Dollar is quite smooth for having seen considerable circulation.
