Boldly lustrous with a sharp strike and full mint brilliance on the obverse save for a whisper of gold at the rim; the reverse is alive with varied gold and rose iridescence. Just one example of the date has received a finer grade than the present coin by PCGS, and that coin is no doubt locked away in an advanced Morgan dollar set. The present Gem is ideally suited for a PCGS <em>Registry Set.</em> From a modest mintage for the date of 700,000 pieces.
