||For an issue whose strike is usually soft, this example stands out; while not bold, there is clarity to much of the hair, and the eagle’s feathers are apparent, if not fully delineated. There are some marks and scuffs, one, parallel to the lower eyelid of Liberty of note, but overall they are not distracting. The high points of both sides show parallel lines from the drawing bench. Die cracks are apparent through the reverse legend. The coin has an overall soft pinkish golden hue, with mainly peripheral areas of purple, green and cobalt tone. In the upper tier of survivors.
