Slightly sharper but there are several dozen tiny pits on the left side of the obverse and a small area of raised verdigris at IA in BRITANNIA. The remainder of the planchet is smooth and the toning is an attractive and mostly glossy medium brown. No notable contact marks. The date is strong and most of the legends are clear. MDS with swelling that severely weakens GEO and the opposing legend at RIT. Weight 100.9 grains.
