PCGS authenticated and graded AU 58. Very attractive frosty light to medium brown.Just a few trivial marks including some microscopic ticks on the jaw, a tiny rim nick over the right side of star 6, and a speck of darker toning at the top of the N in CENT. Just a light touch of friction on the highpoints of the devices. Very scarce EDS, die state a, with repunching clearly visible below the 1 and fine diagonal die lines from the dentils below the 54. A nice example of a tough die state, the best EDS business strike example that Jack Wadlington was able to find when he built the spectacular Twin Leaf Collection. Previously removed from a PCGS slab graded MS62BN.
