Intense cartwheel luster spins boldly across frosty surfaces adorned with a rich array of bold peach, rose, nen blue, and crimson iridescence. An impressive Gem example of the popular "teardrop" variety with the bases of both 7s in the date repunched. We don't often use the term "high-end," but the present coin is definitely deserving of the appellation. Gem quality both physically and aesthetically.
