Attractive mint luster in the fields and on the devices with pleasing orange-gold color that invites the eye to linger. The strike is firm although the eagle's wing is a trifle soft as nearly always seen on this date. Clean surfaces with minimal handling marks or nicks, and these are mostly on the devices at the high points. This date and mint are quite scarce in all grades, and quite a number of the survivors are circulated to some degree. A lot of eye appeal for the modest grade assigned.
