This piece is sharply struck throughout, with bold stars, and strong curls on Liberty. Note the definition on the eagle and the claws, areas which are weakly struck on many Seated dollars. Liberty's head and all of the obverse stars are likewise sharply, if not fully struck. This excellence of overall detail is quite unusual, for the type, and doubtless helps to explain the rare Gem grade assessment by NGC. Toned with a blush of light gold over champagne-gray coloration. The fulsome mint luster that shimmers over both sides is of a beautiful, satiny texture. We note a long thin line down the right obverse field, close to the inside stars, and a similar but much shorter faint line just below the stem on the reverse. Fine die lines (as struck) are found around the upper and upper left obverse stars. Census: 7 in 65, 0 finer (11/07).
