Boldly lustrous and largely brilliant with warm champagne-gold iridescence throughout. The strike is sharp and full, and contact marks or blemishes of any nature are not to be seen by the naked eye. A date with a <em>Red Book </em>value that escalates dramatically between EF at $325 and AU at $1,650. In "just" Mint State-60, the value jumps to $36,000 and runs rapidly upward from there. Choice for the grade at every turn, and a coin that would be right sat home in a high-power Morgan dollar set.
