This evenly worn deep golden-gray Flowing Hair half dollar is alive with rich gold, blue, and crimson iridescent toning highlights that gather in the protected design areas -- a bright light source illuminates the toning to its fullest advantage. No marks of any measure assail the unaided eye, and a loupe reveals nothing more than a few trivial ticks. In our opinion, the present specimen must be among the finest examples of the date called Fine-12, as it is choice and appealing to the eye and the design motifs are sharp and crisp for the assigned grade. Well worth more than just a casual glance.
