Choice bold strike and brilliant luster, the rims particularly bold despite a couple minor (natural flaws), really quite flashy and important as the best among almost 50 entries for this date in the NGC census, also top grade for the entire type with transitional bust (which NGC calls "imagined" but more popularly known as "admiral" due to the king's portrait being modeled after the Admiral of the Navy in Chile sporting a ponytail in his hair, which the king never had. NGC# 5893027-005.
