An impressive condition rarity, this second-year classic Commem is also a beautifully toned Superb Gem. Handsome olive-copper iridescence dominates the outward appearance on both sides, but it is enhanced by more vivid highlights of cobalt-blue and salmon-pink colors at the borders. Softly frosted luster remains vibrant despite the depth of toning, and it is undisturbed by grade-limiting abrasions.
