Mostly glossy medium brown and light olive blending to reddish chocolate brown in protected areas. A strong glass reveals extremely fine granularity in the fields and protected areas but this piece looks smooth and the eye appeal is excellent. Nicely struck everywhere except for NEC and at the opposing area near the rim behind the head of the seated figure. No notable contact marks or planchet defects. Struck very slightly off center to K-12 causing the bottom of the date to be off the planchet. Weight 143.1 grains.
