As we also previously wrote, the typical 1929, with its generally sharp strike and fully lustrous and frosty surfaces, exudes considerable eye appeal. The example we offer in this lot fits that bill to a tee. All of the design elements are sharply delineated, though minor softness is noted on portions of the Capitol dome. The frosty surfaces exhibit vibrant luster and are toned in variegated yellow, peach, orange-gold, and lime-green. The surfaces are well preserved, although a few minor marks on Liberty's head and left leg are mentioned for accuracy. While this issue often contains copper stains, only one tiny spot is located beneath the eagle's neck. All in all, this is a very appealing Gem. Population: 18 in 65, 3 finer (9/05).
