Since I see a good presents of bare bellies being posted I thought I would show you guys this one that I've had sitting in my "randoms" collection, I know it is not a full bare belly but it is pretty close.

Although its only due to over polishing I still think it is nice so I kept it anyway.

Very cool, I think they were overworking the dies in the late 1970s, you see the same thing with 1-cent coins. Mint state examples will even show the die polishing lines.

Fantastic example, I will keep my eyes open. It erased so much detail it actually erased a lot of the neck area too!

Now that's die polishing, with a vengeance. Nice example.

Nice and cool. The polish worker needed some beaver hairs, so hope complete his collection.
