Slightly sharper but there is scattered pitting on the right side of the obverse on an otherwise smooth, very attractive planchet. A few of those pits contain traces of greenish verdigris. Otherwise the only defect is a shallow planchet flake just left of the date. Glossy medium steel brown blending to olive brown in protected areas. The date and legends are easily readable. Weight 135.7 grains.
Ex Edward Hessberg Collection, Stack’s 6/19/1991:1362 (plated).
