Technically better, at least VF20, but covered with fine to moderate roughness and the planchet is bent thanks to a pinch on the rim at NN in CONNEC. There are traces of shallow verdigris on both sides, mostly on the reverse. Slightly glossy tan and light brown with dark olive brown toning in protected areas. A shallow, rather fresh dig on the bust is the only notable contact mark. The date is strong and most of the legends are clear. Intermediate die state with strong die cracks on the left side of the obverse and minor swelling at the date. Weight 106.7 grains.
