Cleaned and partly retoned glossy golden tan and light olive. Fine hairlines show on both sides, strongest on the highpoints, but it takes a glass to see them. Minor planchet chipping shows at the bottom of the neck and upper part of the seated figure. A swipe of darker toning off the chin and a collection of minor rim nicks at the upper right of the reverse are the notable marks. The date and legends are bold. A proper retoning would improve the eye appeal of this nicely detailed example. Weight 131.1 grains.
