Details

This is the nicest and prettiest example I have ever handled, and it's tough to imagine a more attractively toned one extant. The Lincoln side shows impressive and rich periwinkle and royal blue toning with some paler violet in the fields, while the Garfield side is more lightly toned with peach, violet, and flecks of blue. Both sides are deeply reflective and radiantly lustrous. According to Julian, 2200 of these were struck and sold for a quarter each, a handy profit if indeed the entire mintage was sold. While many survive today, very few boast eye appeal like this one.
