Delicate pinkish-gray iridescence deepens to mottled copper-russet highlights at the borders. Satiny luster is a bit subdued, this feature probably precluding a higher grade since there are only a few minor abrasions scattered about. The 1920-S is in the top 10 among Walkers in terms of overall Mint State rarity, and it is more challenging to collect than such other issues in this series as the 1917-D Reverse Mintmark, 1917-S Reverse Mintmark, 1918-D, 1918-S and 1928-S.
