Owner Comments:

Only one MS-67 at either service, and this is it. Appears to meet Valentine's description of a V-4. The 8 4 numerals in the date are close together and the reverse die has all but disintegrated. A pie shaped die crack starts at the second T in STATES and also at the first A in AMERICA. These two meet at the M in DIME and then proceed down through the bowknot to the rim at 6 o'clock. Somewhat aggressively graded as there is a mark on Liberty's left arm and another on her stomach. The reverse is colorfully toned, but the coin does not have strong eye appeal as it is not a good complement with the obverse. Bought from Jason Carter, January 2010.
