Glossy steel brown and chocolate blending to darker olive brown in protected areas. Would rate a slightly higher grade if not for a few diagonal planchet voids, mostly on the obverse, a small chip out of the rim at the top of the staff, a dull dent in the field at the back of the head, and a couple old scratches below ET LIB. Looks nicer than it might sound. Nicely centered on the planchet. The date is quite bold and the legends are clear. LDS. Comes with a nice provenance. Weight 135.1 grains.
