          Flashy and near white. There are die polishing lines on the reverse. The mintage is estimated at 700 pieces. Breen lists two varieties for this year, and this coin is the first variety which is described as having a spine from Miss Liberty's throat into the field. Could this be a misplaced date in the form of the top serif of a number 1 punch?

Priced at $1175.00
