Item Description:
Miller 74, Unlisted in Breen. Rarity 7. A remarkable nice example of this date, far nicer than the grade would indicate. The color is a rich, yellow-green, the strike is exceptional, and the aesthetic appeal is wonderful. Struck from heavily clashed dies, which effectively destroyed the obverse die by cracking it across in one place, and with other intersecting cracks that spelled the end for this variety. The reverse is heavily clashed, but it survived...
