At least ten points sharper but covered with uniform fine granularity. No verdigris and the only significant contact mark is a rim dent over CO. The only planchet flaw is a minor lamination from the L in LIB to the top of the shield. Olive brown and chocolate. A small (incomplete) tag showing the attribution is pasted to the lower part of the seated figure. Weight 143.5 grains.
