We looked this near miss GEM over really hard. It is just one very old light scratch from full MS65 status.The surfaces are thick satiny texture and reveal only a few light frost breaks. A good luster enhances the totally original colors. Both sides are a mix of reddish gold/golden brown/pale purple/deep champagne colors. The colors are pretty and are NOT dull or drab. Miss Liberty and the details are fully struck and really stand out. The eye appeal is great!
PCGS 65, NGC 69, CAC 21. We seldom see these appear. This coin will please the pickiest buyer!
