Rather glossy olive with lighter golden brown on the devices. Fine roughness covers all but the highpoints. No verdigris. There is minor chipping on both sides, strongest at the top of the shield where the strike is soft. The only contact marks worthy of mention are a half dozen parallel nicks and short scratches at the top of the shield and globe. The planchet is a bit egg-shaped and the reverse is off center to K-4 leaving the bottom of the date slightly off the planchet. The AUCTOBI error is strong; the ET LIR error is a bit weaker but still visible. Struck with the reverse rotated 45 degrees clockwise. Weight 135.6 grains.
