Several points sharper but dented. The dents were strong enough to create bulges in the slightly rough planchet. Fortunately the toning is an attractive and slightly glossy light to medium chocolate brown. The date is weak but the 178 is visible. The legends are nearly complete, including the “Running Fox” feature. An earlier die state, before the significant die failures that are associated with the old Maris 78-dd variety. Weight 139.1 grains.
