Rather glossy olive brown with lighter steel brown toning on the devices. Microscopic roughness covers all but the highpoints and there is no verdigris. The only planchet flaws are a small chip over the first N in CONNEC, a tiny chip left of the E in ET, and a couple small voids under the LI in LIR. Just a couple trivial contact marks including a fine diagonal scratch on the bust and a vertical one at the top of the staff. Nicely centered with a complete, bold date that is considerably stronger than the date on the Taylor, Perkins, and Ford examples. The AUCTOBI and ET LIR errors are obvious. Weight 142.0 grains.

Ex Goldbergs 2/2001:64.
