Condition: I would grade the coin as a Gem Brilliant Uncirculated with all the details being very well preserved. The coin retains all of its original mint luster. The high points of the coin show no wear but has some bag marks and a few minor scratches. The reverse shows nice details of the arms and the cactus plant on which the eagle is perched on the reverse. The coin is clean and has great eye appeal. It is beautiful and would make a great addition to your collection. Please see photos for additional condition information.
