Satin to semi prooflike quality in an example of this scarcer first year twenty-cent issue, both sides are lightly toned in a mostly silver-gray iridescence. For the lower and upper left obverse borders, however, we do note splashes of bolder charcoal-russet patina. Fully struck, and definitely an early impression from a fresh set of dies.
