Equal Sharpest Rare Die State
Sharpness AU50 or better but someone carefully engraved letters between stars 1-8 reading “L J P to E C P” (perhaps a love token). Otherwise this piece is choice with just a hint of rub on the highest points of the devices. Frosty medium steel brown and light olive. Sharply struck LDS, die state e, with bold rim cuds at ES and AM. Equal to the sharpest example of this die state in the Grellman census, and the strength of the cuds is a big plus since several of the known examples have weak cud breaks.
