Bright silver with a golden blush favoring the rims. The strike is sharp on the devices, in particular Liberty's curls as well as the eagle. Notice too the die clashing in the fields, particularly on the reverse. Furthermore, the surfaces are attractive as they display minimal signs of handling to distract the eye. A low mintage date that has always been in high demand for the finer examples that survived, such as this majestic coin.
