A lovely example with shimmering luster and well preserved surfaces. Attractive patina confirms the originality of this premium Gem, and the reverse shows unusually crisp delineation of the central design motifs. Survivors of this first authorized silver commemorative issue--struck in conjunction with the World's Columbian Exposition, held in Chicago in 1893--are scarce at the MS-66 grade level or higher.
