Choice glossy light chocolate brown with lighter brown toning on the highpoints of the devices. Smooth and very attractive, essentially flawless except for the usual minor planchet chipping found in the centers. Later die state with fine die cracks and minor swelling on both sides. Well centered, the reverse a bit tight to the top, but the date and legends are complete and strong. A wonderful piece, certainly in the condition census. Clearly superior to the Taylor and Ford examples. Weight 126.3 grains.
