Glossy medium brown with a bit of darker olive brown toning nestled into protected areas. Most of the planchet is reasonably smooth but there are some vertical striations on the face extending into the field to the left, a deeper striation or void at the top of TO in AUCTORI, a few light striations on the left side of the reverse, and a small but obvious striation that obliterates the first 7 in the date but the other 3 digits are clear. The details on the right sides are bold and suggest a higher grade. Struck slightly off center to K-1. Weight 131.7 grains.
