A lovely representative of this popular type, both sides reveal considerable reddish-orange luster beneath light-to-medium, copper-brown patination. Direct angles also call forth a semi-prooflike finish on the obverse. Crisply impressed, with a small spot at the upper-obverse rim that seems to be the only impediment to a full Gem rating.
