Glossy light olive and steel brown with 15% of the mint red remaining. The only notable marks are a splash of silvery steel brown toning at the wreath ribbon to UN in UNITED and another below ME in AMERICA. M-LDS, die state c, with a fine die crack through the top of ME in AMERICA. The rim cud from star 1 to under the 18 has not formed. Our grade is MS62+, tied for CC#6 in the Grellman census. An attractive cent that comes with a nice provenance.
