Mostly glossy medium brown blending light chocolate in protected areas, especially on the reverse. The obverse is smooth and choice showing only trivial defects. The right half of the reverse shows some fine diagonal planchet striations and there are traces of shallow verdigris in some of the protected areas. A minor planchet clip at K-4.5 on the obverse can help identify this piece. The obverse is nicely centered on the planchet; the reverse is slightly misaligned to K-1 leaving much of ET off the planchet. The date is complete and strong, which is quite unusual for the variety. Weight 150.1 grains.
Ex Richard August 1/3/1982-George C. Perkins, Stack’s 1/12/2000:250-Tom Rinaldo 3/25/2000.
