Despite considerable die polishing that has imparted shimmering reflectivity to the fields, the reverse still retains bold remnants of the underfeathers. Other positive attributes for this piece include a sharp strike and warm copper-rose patina here and there around the peripheries. A very scarce variety with a Deep Mirror Prooflike finish.
