Lightly toned. Lustrous medium gray surfaces with rich detail on either side. A truly exquisite AU50 specimen of a fashionable draped bust, small eagle transitional issue from 1795, a class of coins always difficult to acquire in upper grades. Sometimes, these are weakly struck; however, with present specimen we see a wonderful exception in the broad regions of crisp strike found on the curls and drapery, the eagle's body and surrounding wreath. A remarkable coin. Pop 6; 11 finer; 7 in 55; 2 in 58; 1 in 61; 1 in 62.</B> <BR>Estimated Value $10,000 - 11,500.
