Bold-to-sharp in strike, and free of individually mentionable blemishes, this is an appealing type candidate at the AU grade level. Mottled toning in reddish-copper, steel-gray and sandy-tan colors is noted, the reverse rating as much the lighter of the two sides. A coin that obviously saw limited commercial use, and one that was further able to survive without acquiring any significant detractions.
