Very Late State 1776 Large Date

Sharper by at least 5 points but covered with uniform fine to moderate granularity. No marks or verdigris, and the eye appeal of this piece is quite nice in spite of the imperfect surfaces. Struck slightly off center to K-7 affecting only the dentils. Very late die state with bold cracks on the reverse including an internal cud break at the top of the staff, the latest seen. The date and legends are complete and strong. Weight 123.5 grains.
