A small nick on the neck and raised corrosion within E in CENT. Mint red and brown. Probably from the Randall hoard. We also note a minor spot on Liberty's nose, and a cluster of tiny tick marks at the central reverse, and another small group below the ribbon on the reverse. Lovely color and apparently original."
