Scarce even in lower Mint State grades, the 1927-S is a rare find as a Gem. Not only does the present example offer sharp-to-full striking detail and a silky-smooth sheen, but both sides possess truly remarkable luster in a vibrant satin-to-semi-prooflike (!) finish. Lightly patinated in iridescent shades, with the strongest eye appeal that this cataloger has seen for the issue in quite some time.
