Beautiful lustrous medium brown with a bit of prooflike flash thanks to a fresh die lapping. Generous mint red remains in the fields, about 15-20% overall. No marks or spots detract from either side and the eye appeal is outstanding. Among the finest known of the variety and has more mint red than the Naftzger coin that was called MS65 and finest known. One could make a case for a Gem grade for the present coin. M-LDS (c).
