Technically sharper, close to EF40, but fine roughness covers most of the planchet. No verdigris. The notable marks are a horizontal void at the back of the head and a thin fissure curving from the first 7 in the date to the foot of the seated figure. The date is relatively weak but easily readable and the legends are strong. Slightly glossy dark olive brown and steel with medium brown toning on the devices. A bit off center to K-5 but without any consequences. The AUCIORI error is strong. Weight 139.4 grains.
