Sharpness F15 or better but there is a collection of intentionally made scratches that break the toning in the field before the horse’s chest. The rest of the planchet is an attractive and mostly glossy chocolate brown with lighter brown toning on the highpoints, but those scratches really catch your eye. Otherwise the only notable mark is a minor rim bruise off the end of the plow beam. Struck slightly off center to K-5 leaving the bottom of the date off the planchet. The rest of the date is easily readable and the legends are complete. Weight 141.9 grains.

Ex William Weimer, Pine Tree Auction Co., 3/5/1976:2041-the Uncle Joe Collection (lot envelope included)
