This conditionally scarce example represents an important bidding opportunity for the Gem-quality type collector. Both sides are satiny in sheen with soft, pinkish-tan color that is a bit warmer on the reverse. Sharply struck from a well-balanced strike, the surfaces are free of distracting abrasions and carbon flecks.
