The obverse is slightly better while the reverse is a bit weaker, perhaps a 5/3 split. The planchet is covered with uniform very fine granularity. No verdigris or marks. Dark steel and olive brown with lighter steel brown and chocolate toning on the devices thanks to a light cleaning. Very rare LDS, Manley state 7.0, with a strong cud break at OF-AMERI. The date is complete and clear but the Spiked Chin feature is faint.

Ex Douglas F. Bird 3/18/2006-John Koebert, McCawley & Grellman Auctions/Goldbergs 9/13/2015:41 (includes the Bird sales ticket, Koebert collection envelope, and Goldberg auction lot ticket)
