Glossy light olive and tan with slightly lighter highpoints on the obverse. No notable planchet flaws. Just minor contact marks including a light vertical hairline scratch up from the forehead and a horizontal one across the bust. Nicely centered with a full date and legends. Later die state. Irregular die cracks show on both sides of the obverse and an internal cud break is located just right of the shoulder. A nice coin that comes with a great provenance. The attribution is noted on the edge in white ink. Weight 113.6 grains.
