Much more appealing than the grade suggests, and an extremely rare type. Described as follows in the Eliasberg catalogue: "Light yellow gold, some smoothing on portrait and in fields, light polishing has left fields a trifle bright but original lustre remains in protected areas where metal looks frosty and fresh, reverse unaffected. An important and noteworthy coin, a great rarity whose fame and desirability approaches that of the 1836 Rosas portrait piece."
