A flickering cameo-frosted Proof with wonderful eye appeal for the discriminating buyer. The coin includes frosted motifs riding high on deeply swirling reflective mirrors that produce a watery effect collectors find so commendable. A remarkable cameo contrast, indeed! Natural color and no defects or marks of any kind. To find so attractive a coin makes this one extra special for the enthusiast. Pop 9; 3 finer in 66 (PCGS # 88045) .
Estimated Value $30,000 - 35,000.
