Sharper by at least 10 points but dark olive with greenish patina in protected areas suggesting this piece was lost in soil for a while. The surfaces are still rather glossy and the eye appeal is nice. No marks or other defects, just lightly worn on the highpoints of the devices. Struck very slightly off center to the top leaving the date tight to the edge but all the devices are strong. Weight 117.2 grains.
