Beautiful frosty light to medium chocolate brown with tiny peeps of faded mint red visible around ET LIB. The surfaces are smooth except for the usual microscopic chips in the centers and a few trivial chips in the field before the face. The obverse is off center a bit to K-5; the reverse very slightly off center to K-6. The bottom of the date is off the planchet but the rest of the date is bold, the legends are strong, and the FNDE error is obvious. A wonderful CT copper, possibly finest known (or tied for that honor). The Miller-Ford coin graded Fine. Weight 143.2 grains.
