A frosty and lustrous beauty with bold cartwheel activity present. Largely brilliant at the centers, especially on the reverse, with bold rose, gold, and crimson iridescence in abundance elsewhere. The strike is as strong as ever seen for any date in the series, with full details in all quarters. All told, the in-hand eye appeal of this attractive silver dollar is nothing short of magnificent. What appears to be the bottom of the curve of a random 2 can be seen in the base of the rock above the existing 2 in the date. A solitary PCGS MS-64+ example of the date has been graded; other than that one piece, no example of the date has been graded finer than the present specimen. Choice and appealing, and certain to draw strong bidding activity owing to its strictly original appearance.
