Technical grade is EF40 but the strike is uneven, quite weak at the bottom of the obverse and the opposing area at the top of the reverse. The surfaces are smooth except for the usual tiny chips that cover the centers and weakly struck areas. Otherwise the only defects are a small lamination in the field before the face of the seated figure and a minor rim bruise at the B in LIB. Struck slightly off center to K-6. The date is bold and the legends are strong. Later die state with strong swelling on the bust and below AUC, but the die crack to the right top of the O in CONNEC is not strong. Weight 131.0 grains.
