A “Slim Indian” variety with a period following MASSACHUSETTS. Slightly sharper but there is a short scratch through the neck of the eagle, a splash of reddish brown toning on the chest of the Indian, and a thin planchet fissure at the rim at the N in COMMON. Otherwise the surfaces are smooth with just moderate, even wear on the devices. The date and legends are complete and strong. Weight 142.3 grains.
