Struck over a NOVA CONSTELLATIO. Perhaps a bit sharper but there is a dent at the arm below L in LIB that caused an obvious bulge at the cheek of the portrait. Fine granularity covers the planchet and there are light scratches hidden in the toning on both sides, especially on the reverse. Slightly glossy chocolate brown with lighter brown on the devices. Clear undertype from the NOVA CONSTELLATIO is visible on both sides but the variety is undetermined. Struck with the reverse rotated 50 degrees clockwise. The date and legends are complete and clear. Weight 104.7 grains.
