The lightly toned centers are framed by a halo of electric blue and turquoise toning inside the stars and legend. The surfaces are nearly pristine. I note one contact mark on the neck, nothing in the fields. Friction? VERY hard to find. A nice example of this Red Book variety. Just 2 of 49 die pairs in 1827 have a curl base 2. Est. $1,000 to $1,300.
