This is a rare die pairing and an attractive coin for the specialist for its high technical grade and lovely russet-gold toning. The strike is sharp throughout and the surfaces are free of all but minor circulation evidence. A strong loupe will reveal the start of the diagnostic die crack atop the 1 to the 7, and faintly below the large low curl on Liberty to the left of the date. Nearly every example studied from these dies shows a slightly different die state of this crack, from the earliest with virtually no trace of the crack to the final state with a heavy cud below the first star seen on what was probably the last few examples struck before the obverse die was discarded. No adjustment marks, rim problems or other detractions, keeping the eye appeal high for this popular and elusive die variety.
