Deep olive-brown patina blankets both sides of this minimally worn survivor. We do see some lighter sandy-tan color intermingled here and there, mostly in the protected areas around the devices. A few minor abrasions over and around the obverse portrait are noted, but this is still a pleasing representative of this early Colonial-era type. Scarce this nice!
