S-161 in Rare Die State
Slightly glossy dark olive and steel, probably retoned long ago. The devices are smooth but there is minor roughness in the fields and protected areas. No verdigris or notable marks, basically just well worn. The date is clear as are most of the legends. Rare M-LDS, Breen state VIII, with a strong cud break over ATE in STATES, and the area above most of this cud still shows the dentils. A piece for the die state specialist.
