"VF-30" (illustrated above).  Ex - Early American History Auctions, Inc. Mail Bid Sale, April 20, 2002, Lot 992, where it was described (in part) as follows: "...Reasonably glossy on the obverse, with nice contrast between the tan high points and the darker fields. Softly struck on the bottom right obverse and the corresponding area on the upper right reverse. Small lamination flaw at the base of the reverse. The reverse is not quite as glossy as the obverse but is appealing nonetheless. Most collectors lack this variety and this one is as nice as any we've offered in the past several years."
