Highly lustrous with a semi-prooflike finish in the fields, the devices are set apart with more of a frosty texture. This lovely Superb Gem is also sharply struck and untoned with hardly even a trivial blemish in evidence. Certainly among the nicest survivors of this low-mintage, 13,600-piece issue available to today's collectors.
