Split Planchet. Very slightly sharper but the surfaces are a bit dull thanks to extremely fine granularity that covers both sides. No verdigris or notable contact marks, but there is a rather large split in the planchet that extends up through the 17 nearly reaching the truncation. The 95 and legends are complete and easily readable but the 17 in the date is weak at best thanks to the planchet fissure (as struck). Weight 74.2 grains.
