As nice as the issue is available, with a mere handful seen finer than the MS-64 level. Satiny silver surfaces show scattered flecks of gold and the strike is bold throughout, including a well defined thumb on Liberty. Toned with a hint of teal and gold over the entire coin, and close study finds minimal scuffs or nicks from bag handling. One of the tougher dates from the popular series.
