Technically EF40 or better with very little if any actual wear, but the planchet is granular and has small patches of raised corrosion and verdigris on the reverse. Probably retrieved from soil. The only marks are some very old scratches passing NW to SE through the neck. The planchet was too small to receive all the designs from the dies, which is normal for the variety. Much of AUCTORI and ET LIB are off the planchet but CONNEC is quite bold. None of the date made it to the planchet. Considerably sharper than the Taylor, Perkins, and Ford examples. Weight 98.9 grains.
