Stark white and impressive for the degree of contrast between the fields and devices. These delicate mirror fields are very easy to mark up, so bag handling tends to push these into much lower grades in a hurry, not so here as the surfaces are nice for the grade assigned. A small cluster of marks near the arrow tips is noted for identification.
