Frankly, the Heritage Auction description says it all, so we will let their words describe this stunner:
Majestic untoned surfaces on this Premium Gem yield a stunning white-on-black appearance that jumps out at the observer. A complete strike shows full delineation on all points of the design elements, which further accents the incredible field-to-device contrast. Die polish lines are located in the fields, particularly on the obverse, where they are heavy. A minute mark on Liberty's right (left facing) wrist and a minuscule spot on the thigh to the upper right of the shield may aid in the identification of this coin for future catalogers. An incredibly captivating Cameo that is sure to capture the attention of proof Seated Liberty aficionados.
