Got this in a trade with CoinHunter27 for my 1995 DDO NGC MS-67. I didn't really care too much for that 1995, but I love this one. The second one of these in my collection is worn at F-VF, so I was thrilled to get an MS example. Pretty tough to find in mint state right?

Yes, quite rare in MS but not worth what coinfacts lists as an "estimate". It's just not that popular a die and pretty much has to be a registry coin to bust into the big numbers.

Also note that there remains some confusion on the websites about what's what. There is a reasonably similar die with the mint mark slightly different. So using VarietyVista (CONECA) the die with the big obverse die crack up from the ear into the hair is FS-101. According to Wexler that would be WDDO-025 and that crack is not shown as a marker for FS-101. Coppercoins also does not list that obvious die crack as a marker for FS-101.

Anyway, yours is FS-101 by the CONECA catalog and a wonderful rare find. Congrats!
