A scarce date and mint in Choice condition that is highly collectible. The toning is probably from long envelope storage as it is blend of deep russet flecks which flash with blue and rose shades when examined. The strike is a bit soft on portions of the obverse and particularly so on the eagle's neck, but the flashy fields keep the eye dazzled. Minimal bagmarks from handling and a scarce issue in Choice condition.
