Original $165 Crusty Original, Thick Golden Patina, First Year of Issue. This is one of those coins that has two completely different personalities; in hand vs. bright light appearance. My images capture the crusty original surfaces that are so evident during in hand viewing. Once placed under bright light, the toning melts exposure ample luster and faint gold coloring. The reverse also adds some faint blue hues. This piece does have an old toned over line that starts that lower left rim, then through the date and into the right rim. This piece is ideal for a Dansco type set where strict originality is desired.
