Vivid golden-orange peripheral toning gives way to warmer blue-gray and lavender-gray patina toward the centers. All areas shimmer with full mint luster, the strike also suitably bold (for the issue) from the rims to the centers. An exceptionally well-produced and -preserved survivor of this conditionally challenging San Francisco Mint issue.
