Bright and lustrous with satiny rose-red color throughout. Two faint specks on the obverse, and the strike is sharp throughout. One moderate die crack to the left side of the wreath. The pristine nature of the surfaces is simply incredible and a loupe should enjoy a leisurely tour of their undiminished satin luster.
