The strike is rather sharp for this issue, as Liberty has a well defined thumb and most of her head details clear, as does the eagle on the reverse. Delicate peach-gold toning on the obverse with strong luster while the reverse shows more toning in the russet-taupe to deep gray shades. This is an elusive issue to find this close to the Gem grade.
