At first glance, this well preserved example of the first denomination struck at the Carson Mint after it opened, looks like it is Extra Fine in quality. Traces of luster shine through a light grayish-taupe-colored haze, and the details on the raised devices are bolder than what are usually encountered on Very Fine specimens. The reverse, especially, shows Extra Fine sharpness.

All letters in LIBERTY on the obverse’s heraldic shield are visible, although there is typical weakness in the B and the E. This is probably why the graders at PCGS knocked the grade down 5 points to 35, instead of 40. Small nicks and thin hairlines are randomly scattered across the surfaces on both sides, nothing more or nothing less than what you would expect on a large circulated silver coin that is over 140 years old.

Overall, this is a very pleasing specimen of this all-important type coin from the Carson Mint’s first year of operation.
