Lustrous bright silver with traces of light bluish steel in protected areas on the obverse. Looks mint state but there is a hint of friction on the highest points of the devices. Later die state with obvious die cracks and clashmarks on both sides. The upper part of the eagle and the wing below the beak are weakly struck, as always in the later die state (perhaps the reason for the relatively low grade assigned by PCGS). Our grade is AU55. This piece is superior to the Parsley plate coin for the variety. Housed in an older generation PCGS holder.
