Attractive surfaces that show light orange-russet-blue patina on the obverse and reverse over glistening reflectivity. The strike is sharper than average, although the peripheral lettering is not high and rounded, the letters are all well formed and crisp. Shallow bagmarks are present from normal handling, but on the positive side there are not flyspecks or carbon specks to detract. A formidable rarity even a point finer, and tough to find this well preserved, so collectors would do well to purchase this attractive rarity.
