Date logotype high and more deeply impressed at the top and bottom of the date with 18 noticeably repunched. Reverse with D mintmark overlapping feather, with part of the feather visible at the center of the letter and a tiny part of the feather extending from the left of the upright. Pop 15; 18 finer (PCGS # 7725) .
Estimated Value $3,000 - 3,300.
