Yes, a third example of this very rare variety. Glossy light greenish olive with specks of medium olive and reddish brown in protected areas. Some elements of the designs have the details of a significantly higher grade but the surfaces are a bit rough, especially on the head and CONNE. A few specks of greenish verdigris can be found around the bust of the seated figure. The only planchet flaws are a couple trivial flakes near the rim below the shoulder. The 1 in the date is quite weak but the date remains readable. Later die state with heavy swelling that obliterates UC. Weight 130.8 grains.
