LIBRTY is nice and the E is missing. The reverse is a strong FINE, maybe VF. Nice Color & Eye Appeal, Nice Details.Bold Date & Mint Mark. Nice Wreath Details, Bold Rims on both sides. Nice detail in the Corn Cob shows. It's typical for the barber coins to wear more on the reverse than the obverse. The nice reverse on this coin makes it an above average coin. Low Mintage of 575,056. THE BAD NEWS: Lightly cleaned long ago. It's not harshly scratched up from this. If you look in just the right lighting at just the right angle you can see some hairlines. Overall it's still a pleasing looking coin. YOUR SATISFACTION IS A MUST!!
