Attractive glossy medium brown blending to medium chocolate brown in the fields and protected areas. The planchet is smooth and free of any notable contact marks, but there are a half dozen small voids on the reverse, mostly at the waist of the seated figure (as struck). A small, curved planchet clip just right of the date does not affect any of the design elements. Nicely centered on the planchet. The date and legends are complete and strong. A very nice example of this very rare variety, and the GEORGIUS error is bold. The obverse is superior to the Vlack plate coin. Weight 141.6 grains.
