This high quality survivor would make a lovely addition to a U.S. gold type set. Both sides are sharply struck throughout with effulgent, mostly reflective luster in the fields. The color is predominantly rose-gold in shade, although certain angles evoke thoughts of a pale reddish-gold sheen. Virtually distraction-free and possessed of strong eye appeal.
