Sharpness VF20 but a bit dull thanks to microscopic granularity that covers the fields and protected areas on both sides. Traces of very shallow verdigris show in protected areas, mostly on the reverse. Dark olive brown and chocolate with lighter brown on the devices. Struck with the reverse misaligned slightly to the bottom. The date was delicately cut into the die but it is readable; the legends are strong. Weight 136.7 grains.
