Br-1a. The plate coin in the Briggs reference book. An attractive well-struck specimen properly graded due to several tics and abrasions in the right obverse field. As cited by Briggs the die cracks on the reverse are too numerous to mention (particularly heavy, almost cudlike, through the base of STATES circling up through the O of OF to the rim). You have to wonder how much longer these dies can last. Somewhat rusted on the obverse and the reverse starting to break apart. Even with all these issues this coin remains among the finest graded topped only by one MS-64 at PCGS. An appealing and interesting coin. Bought from an ANR auction January 2006, lot 339.
