This coin appears flawless to the naked eye according to the experts at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), who awarded it their second highest grade, Proof 69. This piece also received Ultra Cameo certification thanks to its sharp contrasts between heavily frosted devices and deeply mirrored fields and First Day of Issue certification, an exclusive designation awarded only to pieces that were submitted through an exclusive process. This information comes on a label that bears an astronaut footprint, and the coin has been set in a sleek black core.
