Choice glossy medium brown with mint frost covering the protected areas. Essentially flawless except for a minor planchet lamination low on the neck at the drapery (as struck). Struck slightly off center to K-1.5 leaving CON and the lower part of the date off the planchet. Everything else is complete and strong. Late die state. A very nice Connecticut copper showing only light friction on the highpoints of the devices, and it comes with an important provenance. Weight 143.4 grains.
