Slightly sharper but there is a reddish brown stain at the bottom of the obverse and that area is covered with microscopic roughness with traces of verdigris in protected areas. Otherwise the planchet is smooth and the toning is a very attractive glossy olive brown with underlying tan in some protected areas on the reverse. Intermediate die state with cracks and swelling on both sides. The date and legends are bold. Weight 150.6 grains.
