Deep honey gold with rich rose and pale orange toning highlights. A natural planchet flaw near star 5, as struck, engages the field and the tip of Liberty's coronet, otherwise the surfaces are essentially mark-free. A popular Pike's Peak issue struck from native Colorado Gold. Rather exceptional for the assigned grade, as abundant luster is seen on both sides. A few faint hairlines are noted, but alongside similarly graded private and territorial gold coins, this piece is likely to really stand out as a superior one. Worthy of careful study and likely to attract a premium bid.
