Glossy light to medium brown delicately mottled with darker olive brown on the right side of the obverse. Mint frost shows in the fields and protected areas and, with a bit of imagination, you can see a hint of faded mint red under the T in AUCTORI. The surfaces are smooth and the only defects are a couple small spots of shallow verdigris or crud on both sides. The date and legends are complete and bold. Clearly superior to the three Ford examples of the variety. Weight 140.9 grains.
