Sharpness EF40 or slightly better but the reverse is covered with microscopic roughness mixed with specks of raised verdigris. No other marks or defects. This cent has excellent eye appeal; it takes a good glass to reveal the roughness. The obverse is frosty medium chocolate brown with lighter brown in protected areas. The reverse is frosty reddish chocolate brown. MDS, Breen state IV, with obvious die rust, cracks, and swelling on the obverse. Swelling significantly weakens the upper part of the 179 and lowest curl. A decent example of a neat die state; looks better than the net grade assigned.Ex George K. Pretsch-Gordon J.
