An appealing piece at the lower reaches of Mint State, both sides exhibit mottled sandy-tan patina to otherwise brassy-gold surfaces. Minor spotting is only really discernible after close inspection, and some muting to the surfaces is also an insignificant attribute at the assigned grade level. Free of worrisome abrasions, with a well-executed strike that even remains fairly bold over the central-obverse highpoints. Conditionally rare!
