A sharp and even strike with very attractive semi proof-like fields. Pleasing straw-gold luster is only interrupted on the highest points of the design by the barest touch of 'friction'. The eye appeal is excellent! Just 37,628 minted.
Round 6, 7x6 Stars. Well detailed and attractive with nice yellow-gold luster. Free from any significant abrasions as well as mint-made adjustment marks which are often seen on this issue. A very desirable early 'FIVE'.
Well struck with frosty mint luster and pleasing orange-gold surfaces. Interesting die clashing on both sides.
