I disagree !!!!!  It's not "near perfect", it's perfect.

Wow.  Usually I see "trachy" in the title and skip over the thread.  Glad I didn't--thanks for sharing.

That is certainly a real beauty and will be very difficult to beat!  Haven't seen one struck this neatly at all...

Another one I added to my collection, not perfect by any sense of the means but a really nice strike and a very attractive coin.
