Ultimate #109 WB-17, Original, Newtown Collection Silver and gray surfaces lead to deeper shading at the rims, accompanied by subtle hints of plum patina in the open spaces. Bright central figures are suggestive of an old cleaning. A line connecting the third and fourth sets of obverse shield verticals serves as the pickup point for the WB-17 obverse, while a pair of reverse diagonal lines join the left wing and berry. The strike is softly impressed with flat stars and weakness below the reverse shield. Like most high mintage issues, a good number of varieties exist - 19 in this case - and completing a die marriage set of even a single date is a noteworthy accomplishment. Housed in a PCGS Gen 6.0 (2015-2020) holder.
