Coin came in very good condition. Has very small light smudge on it near the her arm, but otherwise it is in great shape for the first coin issued in 1986, almost 30 years ago.

This 1oz. Gold American Eagle completes my 1986 denomination set. I always count on my items from Apmex to be as described, if not better, and with a very reasonable price. Apmex always delivers!
