Deep olive brown with chestnut high points. Uniform light granularity present under low magnification, as are some scattered marks, none of which assail the unassisted eye. Reverse die aligned at about 250 degrees instead of the usual 180 degrees. A wholly collectable example of this important one-year-only design type from the first year of coinage operations at the U.S Mint.
