CAC Approved. Glossy medium brown and chocolate, but the planchet is
not perfectly smooth. There is a spot of greenish verdigris over the
F in OF, a shallow carbon spot over the Y in LIBERTY, a few fine
hairline scratches on the lower half of the obverse, a reddish spot
in the field before the eye, and traces of light verdigris around
the fraction. EDS, Manley state 1.0. A sharp, attractive example in
spite of the imperfect surfaces (which are typical on this variety).
The date and legends are complete and clear, and the strike is
rather well centered on the planchet. Our grade is EF40 net VF30.
