Baker-2, W-10300 variety, No Button type.

And this is a very high grade for this scarce issue.

Indeed, nearly all of the high grade examples of this type are Civil War era restrikes (some of which, unfortunately, have slipped into mis-attributed holders through the years). 

True original strikings can be identified by the drapery pointing down toward the 7 in the date as here, while on restrikes the drapery runs horizontally above the date.

With sharp detail, nice medium brown color and excellent eye appeal for an issue that seldom comes this nice.

$1,750
