An earlier die state, this piece does not display the prominent rim break (as struck) at the lower-obverse border. The central devices are crisply impressed from the dies, the peripheral stars on the obverse less so. Both sides exhibit a pleasing glossy texture with splashes of crimson-red and blue-gray tinting to a base of medium-brown color. With no significant blemishes, this coin is sure to be of primary interest to Mint State-quality type collectors.
