Choice glossy medium brown with some light chocolate brown toning in protected areas. The surfaces are smooth except for a few trivial planchet chips at the top of the reverse. A beautiful piece for the grade. No contact marks or other defects, just lightly worn. The bottom of the date is off the planchet but the rest is strong and the legends are complete (except for strike weakness on the U in AUCTORI). Late die state with strong swelling and many fine die cracks on the obverse. Weight 154.5 grains.
