This beautiful Gem belongs in a proof type set that highlights originality as well as high technical quality. Both sides are overlaid in lovely pinkish-tan color, the left-reverse periphery also displaying a crescent of honey-apricot tinting. A full strike and smooth, virtually pristine-looking surfaces easily uphold the validity of the Proof-65 designation.
