The current offering is a sharply struck Gem with beautiful coloration and lustrous, matte-like surfaces that have a layer of sparkling mint frost over both sides. The carefully preserved surfaces show a few of the scattered trivial nicks common to a coin at this grade level, and one slightly more noticeable mark, a lengthy superficial luster graze beneath LI in LIBERTY, tailing down into the left obverse field. Some very wispy pinscratches are also noted, for the sake of accuracy, in the field area just to the left of the lower torch. All in all, however, on the basis of eye appeal and technical merit combined, this piece seems entirely worthy of its lofty rating, which makes it one of the top dozen examples of its highly respected date and mintmark.
