|image 1: obverse and reverse of the coin|
While scrutinising some coins few weeks ago, I spotted this piece among the coins. Nothing special about this coin. Not a keydate issue particularly, nor an error coin.
This coin shines among others. With its soothing yellowish tones, I think this coin's grade falls between UNC and BU. Too bad the tones cannot be captured well by my scanner.
By the way, how come this nice, uncirculated coin with nice tones survives the ravages of time, weather and handling, for about more than 20 years?
