One of the finest seen of this first year of issue. The 1892 pieces were generally saved, but precious few merit the Superb Gem Mint State-67 grade today. Toned with rich rose-gold and gunmetal-blue throughout with lustrous fields and satin smooth surfaces. As close to perfection as this date is ever found.
