Glossy medium brown blending to very light chocolate brown in protected areas. The surfaces are smooth except for a few minor planchet flaws on both sides. The notable flaws are a thin vertical fissure on the bust, a couple tiny ones at RI, a vertical one before the face of the seated figure, and a final vertical one at her seat. Very late die state, later than any in the Taylor, Perkins, or Ford collections, with severe die failure at the date into the elements above. The strike at the opposing area above the head is sunken and weak as a result of the failure on the reverse die. A nice example of this rare die state. Weight 143.3 grains.
