Frosty and bright surfaces exhibit bold cartwheel luster and lively champagne-gold toning. A pleasing example from the first year of Christian Gobrecht's circulating silver dollar design type of 1840 to 1865; the motto IN GOD WE TRUST was added to the reverse in 1866. A sharply struck specimen with far fewer surface disturbances than typical for the assigned grade.
