Nearly complete satin to softly frosted luster and original rose-gold color give this coin superior eye appeal in a lightly circulated Type I twenty. Also of note is the surface preservation, which is so impressive as to deny the viewer all but a few singularly distracting abrasions. A sharp strike rounds out a remarkable list of attributes for this premium quality AU-58.
