Both sides are beautifully toned in copper brown, the upper reverse periphery retains traces of original mint red. Struck trivially off center to the lower left obverse and upper left reverse. Only the denticulation is incomplete with all major design elements are well defined for the grade. The centers retain minor traces of roughness from the original planchet texture. There is a very minor planchet flaw at the upper left reverse border. Overall a smooth and attractive piece. Moderately scarce die marriage (R3) in the sense of overall population, but the quality and eye appeal of this peice is far above most.
