Some minor planchet roughness appears along the obverse rim, near S OF AM, but this is mentioned for pedigree purposes only. Both sides show consistent appeal, a function of the good strike and attractive golden-tan coloration. NGC Census: 4 in PR65, 1 finer. PCGS Population: 3 in PR65, none finer (12/08).
