Evenly worn and pleasing uniform steel gray with lighter surfaces on the higher points. Really, an attractive piece other than where it was holed at 12 o'clock, and rather crudely plugged. On the obverse, the small round plug is seen, with some light tooling around, while on the reverse the repair is rather more serious with what appears to be a large lead solder mark at 6 o'clock. Again, beyond the imperfection the coin has much to offer in terms of eye appeal and sharpness. Likely worth an EF grade for sharpness. While we do not usually condone the practice, this piece is an excellent candidate for a skilled "restorer" as there is much to work with on this classic coin. The condition can not be improved, of course, but the eye appeal and overall desirability might well be.
