Frosty and lustrous golden gray with a bold array of rich rose, violet, and electric blue iridescence on both sides. Sharply struck, indeed, needle-sharp as they say, with full design elements on both sides. Reverse die cracks through much of the peripheral legend. The PCGS "+" designation is entirely deserved for this beautiful branch mint Seated Liberty half dollar.
