V-5, small date. There is a noticeable die break in the rim on the lower right side of the obverse centered under Liberty's foot. The lettering on the reverse also appears to be consistent with the reverse Valentine attributed both to this variety and V-1. What a magnificent coin. The fields on the obverse seem flawless, the toning even throughout. The reverse seems even stronger with outstanding eye appeal from its blue/auburn toning and strong luster. No other die cracks, spots or marks to report. It is hard to imagine how any coins of this date can be ranked higher than this one. Bought from Joe O'Connor, November 2003.
