WB-103, R.4, Blundered Date. Repunched 1 to the far left with two dots from the upper and lower left serifs apparent in the field. Medium S. Rare in Mint State as a date and mint, with perhaps a dozen that can claim this general status. Nicely struck by San Francisco Mint, with sharp stars and drapery folds, Liberty's hair curls have good separation throughout. On the reverse, the eagle's talons and thighs are sharp too, with no signs of weakness on that side. Frosty mint luster in the fields with some irregular violet-gray color and a few tiny handling marks. This coin presents a very pleasing appearance. This particular repunched date is extremely rare in grades of AU or finer, and as such undoubtedly high in the Condition Census for the variety. Population: 1 in 62, 4 finer (MS66 finest). (PCGS 6292)
