||PCGS MS 64
WB-102. Errant 1 in rock. A coin that is surprisingly nice for the grade and surprisingly difficult to find finer. This coin offers a sharp strike, booming luster and top notch eye appeal. There are several graded higher (including one NGC MS-67 out there somewhere), but so far I have not seen any that I liked better. Some stray marks in the left obverse field and under the eagle's chin on the reverse are probably what limits the grade which to the naked eye looks like should have been higher than the one assigned.
