The coin offered here is an attractive Choice AU specimen from a late state of the dies with well-detailed design elements and a few die cracks and clash marks on both sides. The pleasing orange-gold surfaces retain traces of original mint luster and show a few minor abrasions, but no planchet adjustment marks. This coin will be a welcome addition to a fine collection or type set.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# BFXJ, PCGS# 8089)
