- This coin is PCGS Certified at MS64
- The Date is set in the very near position.
- This coin is triple clashed at the jaw-neck joint.
- A double counter clash appears next to the neckline.
- The Hair Vee area shows a strong double partial incused "t" with a prominent line immediately to the right of the incused "t".
- A well defined clash event is seen on the top of the Cap (double clash).
- The coin has a double counter clash behind the Cap Vee. The clashing is quite clear.
- The left Wreath Clusters #1 and #2 shows a triple clash event and there is a clash line seen traveling from the Cluster #1 to the wing.
- The last "t" in Trust is double clashed; some specimens might contain a triple clashed "t".
- A triple clash line is seen traveling from the Eagle's right wing to the area between the "n" and "G" of In God.
- The right Wreath Clusters #1 and #2 shows a triple clash event with a counter clash of a leaf edge on the right side of the leaf across from the middle structure of the "M" in AMERICA.
- The Mint Mark is set high. Some specimens may show a Mint Mark that is tilted slightly to the left. I don't think this coin convincingly shows this tilting aspect.
