Glossy light reddish chocolate brown and olive with golden tan toning on the devices. Looks perfectly smooth but a glass reveals a few tiny specks of verdigris hidden in protected areas on the obverse, mostly around the devices above the head. The only notable mark is a tiny rim bruise below the shoulder. The reverse is choice. Nicely struck and well centered on the planchet. The date and legends are complete and strong. A nice piece that comes with a nice provenance. Weight 124.0 grains.
