71.75 grains. Warmly patinated in lavender-silver shades, the color appreciably lighter throughout much of the obverse. Both sides are generally well struck, the only devices that are appreciably off the flan being those along the lower-left reverse border. Free of significant abrasions, this is a lovely AU representative of both the type as a whole and the elusive Noe-9 die pairing.
