We are certain that this piece is different from numbers 1, 3, 4, and 6. It should be easy to identify, with several toning spots on both sides. The fields are mildly reflective, with light cameo contrast. An exquisite example that is sharply struck from perfect dies, this piece has amazing lime-green, gold, and lilac toning.
