Mostly glossy medium brown and darker olive with a splash of reddish brown toning left of the eagle’s tail. The surfaces appear smooth to the unaided eye but a glass reveals microscopic striations and granularity, mostly in the obverse fields. Otherwise this piece would deserve a slightly higher grade. The only marks are a rim bruise at TH in WEALTH and another over the first S in MASSACHUSETTS. The bottom of the date is worn into the rim but it remains easily readable and the legends are clear. Weight 154.4 grains.
