A blush of pale rose and champagne-gold iridescence engages both sides of this lustrous Gem half dollar. The strike is as bold as ever seen with the hand and head details on the obverse sharp and evenly defined. Weinman's stippled field effect is present and adds greatly to the overall eye appeal. Choice for the grade and definitely worthy of its Gem classification.
