Newcomb-8 variety, considered to be Rarity-1. 

Coins like this were occasionally labeled as ‘Proofs’ or ‘Specimen’ strikes by early numismatists, and understandably so, with devices that are in frosty contrast to the semi-prooflike fields (as is well captured by our cropped PCGS TrueView images). 

With lovely color too, accented by some delicate pale blue toning.

According to Walter Breen’s Encyclopedia of US and Colonial Proof Coins 1722-1977 (Dave’s all-time favorite numismatic book, by the way), the James Sloss and Dr. French specimens of this issue that were labeled or traded as proofs in the past are more than likely circulation strikes with PL surfaces, like this one.
