Please Note: There is one chemical spot (probably the chemical which was used to furnish / make the PROOF coins) in between 1 and 8 of 1835 which is hardly visible without the use of the normal magnifying glass and it has not harmed the condition of the coin surface in any way. And it could be very easily removed but to keep the original condition of the coin we have not even touched it and kept it as original. Extremely Rare at any condition. It is visible only by using Macro Lens or Macro Coin Reading Camera.
