Examples of this variety were struck in 1860 from reworked dies by W.S. Lincoln in London, England. A pleasing Gem, both sides are evenly toned in rose-brown patina with some slightly deeper tinting intermingled on the reverse. Fully struck and free of bothersome contact marks, a few trivial obverse spots are hardly worth mentioning.
