Glossy light olive and steel brown blending to darker brown in protected areas. Reasonably smooth but there are some fissures and tiny planchet chips on both sides. The notable flaws are a collection of tiny fissures at the head of the seated figure, three small fissures on her lower half, and one on the bottom of the 8 in the date. A fine scratch at the base of the C in AUCTORI is the only notable contact mark. Struck a bit off center to K-4 but the date and legends are complete and easily readable. Weight 137.0 grains.

Ex Richard Kosta, 1998 C-4 Sale, McCawley & Grellman Auctions 11/21/1998:193.
