Lot Description
The PCGS insert does not denote the Off-Center Bust <em>Guide Book </em>variety, and it also features the incorrect coin #6858. A richly original example with dominant medium-gray patina to both sides. Slightly bolder color is evident along the left-obverse border, and direct angles also call forth delicate lilac-blue and pale-apricot undertones throughout. Still partially lustrous despite having seen light circulation, this strong EF also features bold-to-sharp definition in most areas. Free of distracting abrasions, as well, with a small planchet flaw (as struck) that is out-of-the-way at the upper-right reverse rim. Worthy of a strong bid.
