. A solid Very Fine from a technical perspective but raised green corrosion and verdigris show on both sides, particularly on the reverse, and both sides have numerous laminations in the planchet. There is a strong rim dent and folded-over lamination over NEC. Slightly glossy olive brown and chocolate with tan and light brown toning on the highpoints. Much of the planchet is smooth but there are a lot of defects. On the plus side the details would place this piece in the upper part of the condition census for the variety. The lower half of the date is off the planchet but the rest is strong and the legends are mostly clear. Weight 140.8 grains.
