This beautiful coin is a sparkling Gem in every sense of the word. The luster is frosty and entirely unbroken by any stacking or cabinet friction. Only the most trivial luster grazes are seen on each side that serve to limit the grade on this appealing specimen. A couple of shades of even, peach-gold patina bathe each side. The strike is well brought up, with Liberty's fingers and the Capitol dome revealing nice definition. The reverse field is free of the often-seen die break through the eagle's beak (or it may be from another set of dies altogether). There are also no bothersome alloy spots, the latter of which are also an unfortunate companion to many survivors of this issue. A few minute marks scattered over the obverse are mentioned for accuracy. Population: 24 in 65, 9 finer (11/05).(Registry values: N10218) (NGC ID# 26GN, PCGS# 9192)
