The surfaces are remarkably clean and smooth. Even using a strong glass you will still be impressed. A full booming luster also reveals hints of light semi-prooflike mirrors. The color is a beautiful and totally original copper nickel. There are no spots although there is a tiny toning dot in the N of one on the reverse. Miss Liberty and the details are frosty and have full trikes. The eye appeal is great!
