    Yes it does.
    Those floating roofs occur from the mint over polishing the dies and removing to much metal on the die face.

    Nice floating roof Dearing... sometimes it's missing on both sides in that same spot!

    Cool... A half floating roof... Whom ever did the work on that die must have been experienced... I do not see the abrasions normally associated with the floating roof... Nice looking coin too!!!
