The intermediate die state for this variety, the arcing reverse crack (as struck) has formed a sizeable rim break (also as made) at the digits 00 in the denomination 1/100. This is an attractive VF with reddish-brown patina to both sides. Good detail to the devices with no significant abrasions, light verdigris confined to a few areas around the devices is hardly a distracting feature.
