Deep honey-gold with an impressive amount of retained luster. Warm olive iridescence graces both sides. The surfaces are remarkably free of blemishes considering the size of the coin and the amount of time spent in commerce. Choice for the grade, undeniably so, and a coin that should be judged from a numismatic viewpoint rather than a bullion-related value.
