The obverse is a bit weaker, the reverse clearly stronger, perhaps a 7/10 grade split, so the overall VG8 grade is a compromise. The surfaces are reasonably smooth but a glass shows extremely fine granularity under rather glossy chocolate and steel brown toning. No verdigris, and the only notable mark is a small rim nick over the N in NOVA. Struck slightly off center to K-6 leaving the date tight to the edge of the planchet, but it is easily readable and the legends are complete. Weight 132.9 grains.
