Glossy mix of light chocolate and darker olive brown. There are no planchet flaws and the surfaces are mostly smooth. The only notable defect is a spot of greenish verdigris nestled against the left side of the I in LIB. Struck with the reverse misaligned to K-7.5 leaving the lower half of the date off the planchet (which is not uncommon for this variety). Comparable to the two Ford examples. Weight 113.3 grains.
Ex Bowers & Merena 11/89:1541-Mike Ringo, Stack’s 6/95:20-Tom Rinaldo 12/8/95.
