The obverse of this one-sided proof is mirrored with light brown toning over pale orange mint color, showing hints of blue on the cheek. The reverse has a satiny blend of light olive and blue toning over faded mint color. A pleasing one-sided proof with a small lamination defect at the base of the 1.

    Variety: Newcomb-1. Noyes Die State B/B. The obverse has a crack from star 5 to LI, through the head, and continuing to star 8. The reverse has a crack from the border over the first A, to the tops of TES, and the rim over OF. Another crack begins at the top of the F to the rim over AM.
