Mostly brilliant with just a hint of natural iridescence. The motifs are frosty and the fields are satiny. Boldly struck in all particulars including Liberty's tresses, the eagle's plumage, and the obverse stars, all of which show their divisions. The comparatively large mintage of 113,164 pieces should not dissuade prospective bidders, as examples grading MS-62 rank as important condition rarities. Worth a generous bid from the alert specialist.
