A scarcer variety as the majority seen are the large date version. Apparently a couple of obverse dies were dated using the half eagle date punch. Moderate handling marks from circulation, including a few on Liberty's face and the surrounding fields. Sharply struck by the dies, and toned with a dash of copper highlighting the devices.
