An ET LIR variety. Slightly sharper where properly struck up but there are thin planchet striations covering much of the obverse and a single but more prominent void on Britannia (as struck). The remainder of the planchet is reasonably smooth but there are several obvious digs on Britannia’s knees. Mostly glossy medium brown and light chocolate. The bottom edge of the date is off the planchet but it is easily readable and the legends are complete. The ET LIR feature is strong. Weight 131.6 grains.
