Some rim damage is noteworthy on the upper reverse near 1 o'clock. Reddish-golden accents are prominent across the obverse fields and centers, while deep navy-blue patina envelops most of the remaining surfaces. Only eight examples of this rare issue, thought to be a pattern, are known. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
