Flawless except for a small splash of fine carbon in the dentils at star 13, a dull contact mark near the dentils over star 4, and two tiny ticks over CE in CENT. A flashy, very attractive cent in spite of the minor flaws. LDS. The die lines and tiny dots seen in the early state are gone and the dentils around the obverse are nearly gone. Our grade is MS62+.
