This early date eagle features bright golden yellow luster with a partially reflective sheen on both sides. Slight bluntness of strike shows at the star centers on the obverse, as typical of New Orleans Mint eagles of this date. The reverse features the ring in the top portion of the reverse. An interesting issue; the population significantly drops off at the MS-60 level, making an AU the highest grade within the reach of most collectors.
