Five points sharper but there is an incomplete planchet cutter impression on the right portion of both sides (as struck). Technically this mint-made flaw shouldn’t affect the technical grade but it does hurt the eye appeal; hence the deduction here. Otherwise this piece is quite nice, just worn with small planchet striations on both sides, particularly on the left side of the reverse. Glossy medium brown and light chocolate. The date is strong and the legends are easily readable (although REX is weak as usual). Weight 107.0 grains.
