72.38 grains. PCGS has mounted this coin with the reverse up in the holder. Handsome dove-gray patina to fully original surfaces. The impression is drawn toward the upper-left borders on both sides, but those devices that are present exhibit considerable boldness of detail for a Pine Tree Shilling that acquired 20 points of wear. Problem free for the grade, and worthy of a solid bid.
