Pastel copper toning dominates the obverse. The reverse is lighter with an eye-catching slice of electric turquoise through the dentils, from 6 to 9 o’clock. This Red Book staple is a reasonably common die marriage though it remains elusive in AU or better. Full cartwheel luster graces this well struck example. Note the detail in the eagle’s claws and feathers. A few signs of handling are obscured by the attractive toning. In all, a high end coin for the grade. PCGS suggests $2,000 for an AU 55, about right for this pretty coin.Estimate: $1,500 to $2,000
