An enchanting specimen, both sides are silky smooth in sheen and solidly graded in all regards. The devices are fully impressed from the dies, the strike also imparting modest cameo contrast to the finish. Essentially brilliant on the obverse, delicate champagne-pink iridescence is confined to the reverse where it deepens in shade just a bit toward the denticles. Worthy of a close look!
