Considerably sharper but a bit rough with a couple dozen pits, mostly on the reverse. Some of the pits contain traces of verdigris but much of the planchet is smooth and the details are sharp. Rather glossy reddish steel brown and chocolate with lighter brown toning on the devices. Sharply struck and nicely centered on the planchet. Much sharper details than those on the Ford coin. The date and legends are complete and bold. Weight 126.1 grains.
