Glossy light to medium brown blending to light chocolate in protected areas. The highpoints are smooth while the fields and protected areas are covered with very fine granularity. No verdigris or planchet flaws. The only marks are a fine scratch from just right of the nostril to the back of the head and a couple more on the lower part of the seated figure plus a small rim bruise at the D in INDE. Nearly centered on the planchet with a full date and legends. Not perfect but still very nice for this tough variety. Weight 137.5 grains.
