Variety with Sprig Above Plow. Glossy chocolate brown with lighter brown toning on the devices and patches of reddish chocolate toning in a few places, particularly on the reverse. Traces of verdigris can be found in some of those reddish patches but the surfaces are mostly smooth and the eye appeal is nice for the grade. The only contact marks are two fine, old scratches near URI at the top of the reverse. The date and legends are complete and strong. LDS with die cracks and internal cud breaks at the left top of the shield. Weight 142.7 grains.
