Glossy medium brown and light chocolate with darker steel brown toning on the highpoints. There is obvious chipping in the centers and on the left part of both sides. The notable flaw is a diagonal fissure from the top of the obverse to the forehead. There is a tiny rim nick under the bust and a minor planchet clip over the I in LIB. Early state with just a few cracks at the shoulder and a fine crack up from the leaf tip at the top of the head. The date is bold. Weight 105.2 grains.
