Glossy medium steel brown and light chocolate. There is chipping on the portrait into the field behind the head and similar chipping on the lower half of the right side of the reverse. A thin vertical lamination up through the first cinquefoil on the obverse and another up from the bottom of the second C in CONNEC are good identifying features. The obverse is centered on the planchet; the reverse is off slightly to the bottom leaving the bottom of the date off the planchet. Otherwise the date and legends are complete and strong. Clearly superior to the Perkins and Ford examples, comparable to the Taylor piece. Weight 129.8 grains.
