Very attractive glossy medium brown blending to chocolate brown in protected areas. The head and neck are softly struck as is the opposing lower half of the seated figure, but everything else is smooth and nicely detailed. The softly struck places show the usual small planchet chips. No significant planchet fissures or contact marks. Struck slightly off center to K-11 leaving the bottom of the date slightly off the planchet. Otherwise the date and legends are bold. Comparable to the Ford example that was called Extremely Fine. Weight 134.6 grains.
Ex Richard Kosta, 1998 C-4 Sale, McCawley & Grellman Auctions 11/21/1998:202.
