A pleasing original "dirty" coin with dirt remaining in the reverse dentils. The luster in the protected areas is a pleasing satin and the color is green-gold with a nice tan patina. The strike is good and the abrasions are minimal. The coin can be identified by small marks on the cheek and shallow reeding marks in the right obverse field. Purchased from Barry Stuppler.
