Variety with second U over S in PLURIBUS. Partly glossy chocolate brown with lighter brown toning covering the devices. The surfaces are decent but a glass reveals microscopic roughness in the fields and protected areas. No marks or verdigris. Struck slightly off center to K-6 leaving the lower part of the date off the planchet. The date remains readable and the legends are clear. Later die state with a strong die crack from the rim down the right edge of the B in PLURIBUS to the top of the shield. The U over S error is clear. Weight 148.5 grains.
