Smooth wear on the high points with hints of luster in the lettering and devices. The surfaces show gentle circulation evidence but no deep digs or cuts on Liberty's face or neck. Struck from native California gold at the San Francisco Mint right after the peak of the productive output from the many mines and streams of the California Gold Rush.
