Attractive glossy two-tone piece with light brown toning on the devices and medium chocolate brown toning in the fields and protected areas. The contrast accents the details and this piece has excellent eye appeal for the grade. The planchet is mostly smooth but there is very fine granularity in the fields and protected areas while the highpoints are smooth. No marks or verdigris. Nicely centered with a strong date and clear legends where not affected by swelling associated with the late die state. The swelling is obvious left of the date to the adjacent B and in the opposing area at the back of the head. Weight 92.6 grains.
