A magnificent gem example with surfaces that are only surpassed by the more stunning toning on both sides! This coin is simply alive with the fire of mint luster which dances beneath the artist's palette of blues, golds and greens on both sides. Mostly blue on the obverse, while the reverse sports an incredible array of blue, gold and red with some white near the center on the eagle. A coin which anyone can appreciate for its peacock like display, but few could ever hope to acquire such a gem...", bought back by the consignor for $18,975.00
