Owner Comments:

Pop 1 at NGC in M-65 with one finer and a beautiful coin with original golden brown toning (there is also one MS-65 at PCGS). An obvious Obverse-7 a la Briggs (the 1 in the date is positioned far to the right, and the 6 is a trifle low), and Reverse-F (from the position of the mint mark), but there is no evidence of weakness in the letters STATES OF AM that Briggs calls for. Must be an early die state before these letters were ground down. Sharp strike with crisp stars and full dentils (which Briggs feels is usual for the date), and the head of Liberty is well struck up (which he feels may not be quite as usual). Bought from a Heritage auction July 2003, lot 6937.
