Sharper from a technical perspective but areas of very fine roughness show on the obverse and the reverse was lightly cleaned. Much of the planchet is smooth but there is a lamination on the jaw into the top of the neck and areas of very fine carbon in protected areas on the obverse. The obverse is slightly glossy dark olive brown and steel; the reverse is light brown with more natural gloss. Slightly off center to K-9 on the obverse, K-7 on the reverse. Most of the date is off the planchet but the tops of 787 are strong and the legends are complete. Weight 115.5 grains.
