Several points sharper but there are some dull contact marks on both sides and a small but rather deep planchet void at the T in AUCTORI (as struck). Glossy medium steel brown and olive with some reddish brown toning in protected areas on the left side of the reverse. The 17 in the date is clear but the 85 is weak. LDS with obvious swelling, especially on the right side of the reverse where those details are nearly obliterated. The attribution is noted in white ink below AUCT. Weight 116.8 grains.
