Thanks, Jim. I love the style of the obverse portrait, but I was pleased to get such a well struck reverse. My research so far suggests there is only one known die for this reverse. -h

Very, very nice. For a common type, it seems to be extraordinarily difficult to find really

choice examples. And this one is REALLY choice!
