Ultimate #190 WB-7c, Choice Original, Newtown Collection A bold reverse die crack underlining HALF DOL quickly identifies this example as a WB-7. The Bugert reference defines four specific die states, with this example matching state C, the last before the terminal state. Apart from the die characteristics, this piece stands out as choice on it own, with frosty luster and active cartwheel for the grade. Silver and gray surfaces host bits of russet, gold, and plum patina that mostly huddle in protected areas. Well struck with most star points visible and nearly separated claw joints. Housed in a PCGS Gen 4.4 (2005-2011) holder. This is a pleasing piece, and the reverse die presents a compelling case study in die degradation.
