Perfection! I knew it when I first laid eyes on it and it was confirmed by 5x, 10x and 20x magnification. I buy 3 coins a year and pick the best one for submission. Every year when I buy the 3 coins from which I pick the one to submit, I spend a great deal of time deciding which is the best coin. Not this time, as it was obvious that this was "the one." Everything about it, strike, luster, cameo etc. were all there and then some. Right before my mother was diagnosed with cancer, we spent time in the area represented on the reverse. It reminds me of the happy times we had before the darkness that was to come. This is a coin that I will never sell because of what it means to me.
