Handsome reddish-copper patina to both sides, the reverse with some deeper charcoal color in the protected areas around some of the devices. There is light pitting and a few flaws in the planchet, none of which are all that significant for a coin of this type that saw considerable commercial use. The impression is drawn toward the upper-obverse and lower-reverse borders, but all major design elements are at least well outlined.
