||H10C 1852 O

Somewhat unevenly and not quite fully struck. Stars 1-7 are sharp, 8-13 flat. Fascinating die break on the obverse through star 1 to Liberty's wrist and then veinlike up her arm to her shoulder. Beautifully toned. R-6 in mint state according to Al Blythe. Pop two at NGC with one other at PCGS in MS-66. Bought from a Heritage auction, August 1998, lot 6303.
