This piece is a restrike circa 1828 attributed to London coin dealer Matthew Young. As typically seen for both originals and restrikes of the type, both sides of this piece exhibit a few oxidation spots, those on the reverse minor and those on the obverse only a bit more sizeable. Even so, much of the original finish is still readily evident, there also being appreciable "flash" evident in the fields when observed with the aid of a strong light. The overall definition is suitably bold, and there are no significant abrasions to either side.
