The only notable defect is a small spot of dark toning at the dentils below star 2. MDS, die state b. The earlier die lines at UN are gone and the fields are lightly flowlined. The details at the top of the ear are not quite fully struck up, as usual in this die state. Our grade is MS63, tied for CC#8 with many other pieces in the Grellman census.
