Rather glossy reddish steel brown and chocolate with medium brown toning on the devices. The surfaces are slightly granular with a few microscopic specks of reddish corrosion, and there is a small but obvious patch of corrosion and green verdigris at the top of the head of the seated figure. No planchet fissures or notable contact marks. Nicely struck except for the bottom of the portrait and the opposing head of the seated figure. The obverse is centered on the planchet; the reverse is off a bit to K-7 leaving the bottom of the date off the planchet. Otherwise the date is strong and the legends are bold. Weight 116.9 grains.
