This coin actually presents quite well despite the impairment, especially for an example of a variety that Breen (1988) describes as "rare." There is quite a bit of bold definition to both sides, and all major design elements are readily evident. The strike is well centered on the flan, and the only significant detractions are an overall rough, dark-brown texture and scattered verdigris.
