This lovely piece exhibits rich glossy-brown patina to the obverse, the reverse a bit softer in appearance with more of an orange-brown sheen. The overall strike is quite well executed for an example of this scarce variety, although we do note that the digits in the date are a bit softly impressed. Problem free for the grade, and free of distracting blemishes.
