Sharpness near EF40 but there is a stain of darker toning from the O in NOVA to the line below the horse and another swipe of similar toning through the date to the rim at the left. Otherwise the only notable marks are a fine vertical scratch down the horse’s neck and a few faint scratches at the end of the plow handles. Glossy light chocolate brown (except for the two stains which are a darker shade of olive). Unevenly struck with weakness on the left side of the obverse and the opposing left side of the reverse causing weakness at PLUR. Everything else is nicely struck. A barely visible planchet clip affects the dentils over UN in UNUM and there is a planchet chip left of the coulter of the plow. Weight 136.0 grains.
