PCGS authenticated and graded MS 62 BN. Attractive frosty steel brown and light chocolate with traces of very faded mint red remaining in protected areas on both sides. There is some light smoothing on the rim at K-2 to K-3 and K-7 to K-9 on the obverse plus stronger smoothing on the rim above STATE on the reverse, possibly to “improve” on some planchet flaw. The only other mark is a scuff in the dentils at CA in AMERICA. LDS, scarce Manley state 5.0, ICA in AMERICA is obliterated by the heavy swelling, the fields at ICA and the opposing area at TY are covered with tiny pre-striking planchet chips, as usual for the late die state. The high grade allows you to see the many fine die cracks that cover the obverse. 1 above 1 variety. Weight 76.4 grains.
