Looks pretty nice for a VG-10. 893scratchchin-thumb.gif

It does, and that's because it's an O-105. The obverse of this die-marriage is more or less the equivalent of a "shielded hair" variety (to borrow an EAC term). The hair detail on this variety is deeply cut and always struck well, which tends to make the coins look nicer than the actual overall grade. That's why it's an ideal candidate for a type set, and thus I thought it might be worth mentioning here.
