Glistening, mirror-finish fields provide appreciable cameo contrast with fully impressed, satin-textured devices. This is also a wonderfully original Gem, the obverse with delicate golden-apricot rim highlights and the reverse awash in blended cobalt-blue, salmon-pink and olive-gold iridescence. A Superb Gem were it not for one or two extremely minor contact marks on the obverse. Pretty coin!
