Steel grey with garish luster that is undisturbed in the fields or across the devices. The coin never entered circulation. If asked “Where’s the friction?” I’ll have to pass. From the same collection that harbored the earlier 1823 broken and patched 3s. This one was plucked from my inventory at the Jan. 2007 FUN Show. Nice! $1,500 to $2,000.
