Pale golden toning over lustrous surfaces on the obverse, matching on the reverse but with a few deeper russet patches mixed into the recesses of the trees. Attractive surfaces and an elusive issue. Among commemorative half dollars, the 1922 Grant With Star is regarded as the ultimate scarcity in the early range of the series.
