Variety with a single L in CONSTELATIO. Very attractive glossy medium brown and light chocolate. The surfaces are smooth and this piece looks choice to the unaided eye, but there are several very fine scratches around “US” and a small punch mark at the end of a ray below the E in CONSTELATIO. Nicely struck and nearly centered on the planchet. Weight 138.2 grains.
