A truly superb specimen, much as struck and extremely Rare, there are two examples of this variant (mullet [i.e. star] after ҺЄnRIC on the obverse and IҺ'C on the reverse.) in the famous Schneider collection and seemingly only one other that has been available to commerce in the last twenty years or so.
Has been graded and slabbed by NGC as MS 62 (*Join top of the population), which we feel is somewhat under-graded for this superb coin.
