This early issue is quite scarce, rated 3 for rarity by Aleksandr Mekhonoshin.

In outstanding, excellent condition. The enamel is virtually pristine, without even slightest wear noticeable without magnification. The original gilt is very nicely preserved, accentuated by attractive patina on the reverse. The screw post is full length, approx. 11.5 mm, and includes original silver screw plate.
