One thing most impressive-this coin has a really strong luster. It glows like a regular MS piece. The surfaces are clearly GEM Matte texture though. Both sides have a generous dose of original Mint Red color that mixes with light brown/gold. There are a few pinpoint toning dots. Lincoln and the details are sharply struck. You can clearly see the thick rims. The eye appeal is super nice!
PCGS 33, NGC 22, CAC 15. The last PCGS CAC piece to sell in auction brought $3,173.00 08/2015. We feel this coin is a little nicer!
