Handsome quality with strong greenish-gold luster throughout, a full strike and clean surfaces that show minimal bagmarks. A loupe will note the final C of the mintmark is broadly repunched to the right, matching the diagnostics to Winter 3-C or FS-301. The finest example of this repunched mintmark seen by PCGS is MS-62, so the present coin is likely the finest of this popular and scarce variety. Worthy of attention from any Carson City specialist who demands quality.
