0.722 g. Deep pewter-gray patina to both sides of this more affordable Oak Tree Twopence. There appears to be some as-struck waviness to the planchet, but a couple of indentations to the surfaces probably explain the details grade from ANACS. The wear is certainly heavy, and the reverse retains little of the design, but the obverse is much bolder with at least outline definition to most features.
