Irregular Date, BD-7, Breen-6840, Bass-3188,Taraszka-19, R.3. Details of About Uncirculated. An extremely elusive issue, the surfaces are an even and satiny shade of rich yellow-gold. The fields are remarkably free of marks for this grade, and the resultant eye appeal is superb. Several die cuds are seen on the obverse rim, and the diagnostic die crack is present from the rim down through the E of LIBERTY to the front hair curl. One rim bruise is noted at 2 o'clock on the reverse. Star 11 is a little soft, but the strike is very bold overall. Accompanied with original paper envelope of purchase as No. 1700, B. Max Mehl Numismatist. (PCGS 98562)
