Outstanding fully lustrous fields. Struck by the United States Mint to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence. The obverse features a bust of George Washington in the center within 13 stars around. Reverse depicts Liberty with a torch in her upraised left hand and palm branch in right, rides flying Pegasus to right above clouds, torch held between sun and rays. Struck in Nickel. At the beginning of the exposition the bronze planchets were not available so an order was placed with a local supplier for nickel planchets. The nickel planchets were used for the first 6 weeks of the exposition until the bronze planchets arrived.
