This rare variety is attributable by looking at the letter S in SIT in the obverse legend; it is cut over an inverted digit 3. Pleasing silver-gray color to both sides, the obverse also with splashes of olive-russet color scattered about the periphery. Well centered in strike with generally bold definition and no evident wear. We also see no mentionable abrasions, and as-struck flan flaws are also few in number and insignificant by the standards of the type.
