Both sides of this Superb Gem display partially prooflike fields that offer mild contrast with the devices. The design elements are sharply struck, including the hair over Liberty's ear. This is a nicely preserved specimen. This is the single finest example of the variety certified by PCGS, with six MS65 coins as its nearest rivals (12/11).
