Choice glossy light to medium chocolate brown and steel. The surfaces are smooth and the eye appeal of this piece is outstanding. No planchet flaws, only light to moderate wear and small contact marks consistent with the grade. A minor straight-edge planchet clip over UC in AUCTORI can help identify this piece. Late die state with severe swelling and die clashing on the reverse that obliterated the date and many of the design elements on that side. Weight 132.1 grains.
