An otherwise relatively sharp strike wanes appreciably only over the obverse stars. Whereas the reverse is fully toned in copper-brown patina, the obverse reveals considerable amounts of faded-red luster when the coin dips into a light. A bit subdued overall, yet free of distracting abrasions or carbon flecks.
