Slightly glossy dark olive brown and steel with lighter steel brown toning on the highpoints. The gloss is subdued a bit by uniform extremely fine granularity that covers the planchet. No planchet flaws, verdigris, or contact marks. The sharpness of some of the design elements suggests a slightly higher grade but there are a couple weak areas, especially at the bottom right of the reverse. The date and legends are complete and easily readable. Struck with the reverse rotated 70 degrees clockwise. Weight 117.5 grains.
