Significantly sharper but there is a deep punch mark in the center of the reverse that has created a bulge at the opposing area on the obverse. Glossy light to medium brown blending to chocolate brown in protected areas. The surfaces are smooth and the only other defects are a tiny flake hidden in the hair right of the forehead and a few tiny scratches in the field before the upper part of the seated figure. The lower half of the date is faint or missing but the upper part is readable. The legends are complete. Comparable to the Perkins example that was rough and cleaned; sharper than the double struck Taylor example. A variety that was missing from the Ford collection. Late die state with a relatively strong die crack from the rim through the left foot of the first N in CONNEC into the back of the head. Weight 157.8 grains.
