A hint of light tone with semi-reflective fields. Only 59,000 struck. Blessedly original, the example in this lot displays the light silver-gray surfaces and luster one associates with Mint condition '46-O Dollars. Both sides are awash in originality, with a few stray bagmarks in line with the MS61 grade. The strike is well above average in being sharp; the emerging detail over Liberty's head on the obverse is what one likes to see. The surfaces may have secured an even finer grade were the luster a little brighter. Pop 5; 11 finer, 9 in 62, 1 in 63, 1 in 65</B>. <BR>Estimated Value $6,000 - 6,500.
