Sharpness close to mint state but there are numerous tiny planchet chips around the periphery on both sides (as struck) while the central areas are smooth and lustrous. In addition there are fine scratches hidden in the toning on the portrait and around the date. Frosty mix of light brown, chocolate, and darker olive brown with peeps of very faded mint color around the cap. MDS, Breen state VI, with swelling in the obverse fields and a die crack down from the cap. In addition there is a clearly reeded area on the edge of the planchet below the date. The reeding appears to be absolutely original. Weight 172.9 grains, slightly more than the 168.0 grain standard for the thin planchet version. Diameter 28.8 mm. A very interesting cent, perhaps worthy of additional study thanks to the edge reeding. The first we have seen thus.From the Sam Nacol Collection-Nacol Estate
