Choice glossy light to medium brown with chocolate brown toning covering much of the area behind Britannia. The surfaces are smooth and this piece has excellent eye appeal. The only marks are a shallow planchet flake hidden in the hair at the ear and a dull nick on the thigh of Britannia. A minor planchet clip at the top of the obverse is the best identifying mark. The bottom of the date is off the planchet but everything else is complete and strong. Weight 153.1 grains.
