An attractively original specimen, both sides display a base of copper-brown patina. The obverse is adorned with vivid salmon-pink iridescence, while the reverse exhibits gorgeous lilac and lavender-blue highlights. Fully struck, as befits the method of manufacture, and obviously well preserved since leaving the Mint more than 140 years ago.
