Striking tab toning is noted for the obverse, otherwise dominant copper-russet patina yielding to more vivid golden-apricot and steel-rose iridescence in isolated areas. The reverse is also attractively toned with mottled sea-green, copper-russet and salmon-pink iridescence around the periphery. Smooth and satiny, with undeniable originality in a high-grade Commem of this type.
