A superbly toned Gem proof featuring a bold strike and a stunning palate of color. Both sides show deep sunset-red and gold at the borders that changes to turquoise-blue, green, and violet at the central regions. Sharply defined with an orange-peel texture in the reverse field, a couple of tiny tics are reported in the right obverse field.
