New May 25! Scarce Philadelphia Date, Gray-Rose Coloring, Partial Obverse Die Crack Die State, Lenny Rizzo Collection. This is somewhat underrated issue, with only 86,400 pieces struck and 124 pieces reported by PCGS in all grades combined. The Seated series is full of such issues, which is undoubtedly an attraction among collectors for whom there is no substitute for rarity. This obverse of this example is enveloped in shades of blue and olive, while the reverse is a more even gray. The strike is typical, with flat stars and weakness in the lower portion of the eagle. Marks are consistent with the grade, and, on the whole, this is a more than acceptable example of a scarce issue. Housed in a PCGS Gen 6.0 holder (2015-date).
