Looks like a RPD but I cannot find any info..
It is such a beautiful coin, a shame that it has been so harshly cleaned..

    According to Briggs OBV 2 (proof dies) have both 8's recut. So it looks like you have an impaired proof.

    Finding someone who would pay a premium for a minor variety that is damaged may be a real feat ... but it isn't impossible.

    Sorry, but not my field of endeavor. Only owned a couple of proof Liberty Seated coins both in holders. Not sure what this market would bear. Place it on the BST and see what it brings, if interested in selling it. Good luck, regardless the coin's path. Jim

    It isn't really even a variety, the mintage of proofs is less than 1000 and they used a single die so all proofs have recut 8's.

    In that case, no premium.

    It appears to have light wear under the hairlines, which would likely get it some combination of PF58 AU Details Cleaned label. A PF58 has a PCGS value around $350-$400, but with the hairlines that value would take a hit.
