I love this type and look at every available coin at every show, buying maybe 2 or three a year. As usual, I reject the great majority, but this one was a winner. Very sharply struck on both sides, a trait that separates it from most. Basically free of marks and mostly brilliant with light silvery patina overall with some deep blue peripheral toning front and back. Finished with full, original mint luster.
