This is a scarce as a date and mint as the original mintage came in at 300,000 pieces -- the vast majority were melted a few decades later. This specimen show attractive yellow-gold surfaces with strong luster and a dusting of light copper toning, particularly in the headdress. Minor bagmarks from the original shipping and handling blend into the fields and cheek on Liberty as well as the eagle's complex feather details.
