This rare variety is attributed by the large 7 in the date, the missing left foot of the digit 1, and the four berries on the branch (three outer).

The semi-bright grayish surfaces of this XF specimen are imbued with whispers of electric-blue and gold-orange, and the design features are sharply defined. A toned over short horizontal scratch on Liberty's neck is the only mentionable mark.
