An underrated issue among early P-mint Walkers, the 1918 is much more challenging to locate in Mint State than a sizeable mintage of 6.6 million pieces might imply. We offer here a conditionally scarce Gem whose surfaces are bathed in frosty mint luster. Gorgeous peripheral toning in reddish-russet and orange-apricot colors further enhances already strong eye appeal and accents a bold-to-sharp strike. Lovely!
