Deep steel-gray with underlying rose and orange highlights. Obverse strike slightly off-center to the lower left, the rim there cutting off all but the very bottoms of IN and MAS, the balance of the design solidly on the planchet. Reverse evenly centered with the rim tight to the top of the legend but not encroaching on the design. Scattered marks and light pitting come to light under low magnification, and a natural planchet lamination, as struck, runs horizontally across the bottom of the obverse. A pleasing coin despite some minor setbacks.
For some interesting "color" for this romantic issue, track down a copy of Nathanael Hawthorne’s charming story about Mint Master John Hull giving as his daughter's dowry her weight in Pine Tree shillings! This little bit of fiction can be found easily on the Internet.
