Owner Comments:

Most O-108a's are XXX edge.

Per DK: This coin very likely had a light cleaning – nothing abrasive – a few generations ago, but has since retoned very attractively in medium gray and bold, iridescent shades of gold with red and blue mixed in. The surfaces are smooth and pleasing, the strike is darn good for this notoriously poorly struck variety, and the eye appeal is outstanding. I think the proper grade is at least VF30, based on the reverse and the remaining luster. Maybe better. A great example of this tough variety.
