Sharpness F12 but covered with minor roughness on all but the highpoints, which are smooth. No verdigris but there are some old, light scratches hidden in the toning, clearest on the shield. Rather glossy dark olive brown with lighter brown toning on the highpoints. The bottom of the date is tight to the edge of the planchet but it is easily readable. The legends are easily readable as well but a few letters on the reverse are weak. Late die state with obvious swelling in the center of the obverse. Weight 137.3 grains.
