Swirling mint frost to both sides, the surfaces also visited by splashes of iridescent-red toning here and there at the borders. Brilliant elsewhere, with an otherwise sharp strike that wanes only minimally in the centers. Conditionally scarce for this challenging S-mint Morgan Dollar issue with a mintage of just 1.2 million pieces and a below-average rate of survival by the standards of the type.
