Pretty orange-brown patina blankets both sides, blushes of deeper color being few in number and rather well concealed within the protected areas around the devices. The planchet stock is uncommonly good, the surfaces with only a few minor flaws (as struck) that are essentially confined to the lower-left obverse periphery. Boldly defined from a relatively well-centered strike, this piece would fit nicely into any collection of Colonial-era coinage.
