Exhibiting a far better strike than is typical of the type, with pleasing amounts of the shield and reverse cross remaining visible in addition to a full assayer initial and partial mintmark. The four digits in the date are also fully legible, making this a great rarity for the date. Certain to attract spirited collector interest. Selections from the Isaac Rudman Numismatic Cabinet."
