BD-3, R.4. Attractive for the lustrous fields that surround the satiny devices, and all are well preserved. The strike is crisp and complete on the stars, curls and feathers. No adjustment marks detract from the rims or fields, and no spots or specks are seen. Perhaps one percent of the original 55,578 pieces minted survive, precious few of these can claim Mint State. One of the finer examples and a coin with solid eye appeal for the astute numismatist. Population: 16 in 63, 16 finer (MS65 finest). (PCGS 8102)
