PCGS graded MS-65 Brown. An outstanding example for the advanced collector who needs a gem. There are traces of mint red but the surfaces and color are mostly a light brown. Fully struck on Washington's wig, and the epaulets are sharp as well. On the reverse, the eagle and shield are sharp as well, and there are not distracting spots or similar problems..."
