This important Uncirculated representative is a bit more reflective than the other two Mint State pieces sold over the past decade, not surprising since so few 1881 twenties were originally produced. Abrasions are fairly plentiful in the obverse fields, but are not particularly bothersome on the portrait and are a bit less numerous and even distributed over the reverse. With interest in "blue chip" gold coins such as this at an all-time high, we feel confident that this low mintage gold rarity in unsurpassable condition could reach a record price level.
The date is centered between the bust and the border, from a four-digit logotype; the 88 appear to be slightly wider than the 18 or the 81. The left edge of the base of the first 1 is over the right edge of a dentil below it. There is no evidence of die polishing, die cracks, clash marts, or other imperfections on either side.
