One of the top dozen seen by PCGS from a mintage of 184,789 pieces. The offered eagle displays a solid strike and attractive copper-gold over frosty luster. Scrutiny of the surfaces finds a few tiny scuffs and nicks, but the fields and devices are incredibly attractive for an eagle of this period. Gems are indeed rare, and specimens at this grade level are seldom offered.
