A most attractive example from the lesser-seen Bordeaux mint, with golden coloration that is accented by coppery tone and well-struck detail across the design elements. Somewhat choice for the grade when examined as a whole, and in a Mint State designation such as this, one that is entirely worthy of a premium bid."
