Owner's Comments

JR-7a.Obverse die break from rim above 4th star through tip of bust through date ending at the 12th star.Reverse die break from 2nd "T" in "STATES" through "UNITED",eagle's wing tip and through "50 CENTS".Pretty light blue-green peripheral toning on the reverse.Much better struck than normal.A very tough type to find nice.Purchased from New Orleans Rare Coins at the 2009 TSNS show.
