Mostly brilliant silver surfaces with soft gray toning on the reverse. Superb luster and inviting eye appeal. Somewhat lightly struck at the peripheries with evidence of original planchet texture still showing. High grade examples of this date are popular type coins, but they become scarce in gem and are very rare above the present grade. According to Q. David Bowers research, approximately 10-20% are of this hub combination, the others being Type I/I.
