High Condition Census M.29.1-n Rarity
Mostly glossy medium brown and light chocolate blending to darker chocolate brown in protected areas. Considerably sharper from a technical standpoint but there are some corrosion pits on the left side of the reverse including a large one over the foot of the seated figure, and the edge is rough over TOR. Most of the planchet is smooth but there is fine roughness up through the center of the portrait. The only signs of contact are some very fine scratches through the date and lower part of the seated figure. The date is clear except for the bottoms of the 1 and first 7, victims of a pair of small pits, and the legends are strong. Superior to the Taylor and Perkins examples and missing from the Ford collection. Weight 130.4 grains.
