Very attractive glossy light olive and medium brown. Sharply struck with crisp details, free of corrosion or contact marks. However there is a rough straight-edge planchet clip at the bust and the opposing area at DE in INDE. The only other flaw is a minor lamination at the throat. The AUCIORI error is bold, only the very top of the A being affected by the clip. Nicely centered with a strong, complete date. A great example from a technical perspective, certainly one of the sharpest known. Weight 139.9 grains.
