Owner's Comments

O-110, Rarity 4. This is a condition census coin for the variety with the top 5 being 61,45,45,40,35. Previously offered in Heritage's 2008 September Long Beach, CA US Coin Signature Auction #1116. The present silver-gray piece is noteworthy for its ample shimmering luster and bold hair definition. Impressively undisturbed by abrasions apart from a hair-thin mark near the TAT in STATES. Struck from prominently clashed dies, as usually seen with this variety.
