A chocolate-brown half cent with some lighter highlights throughout. Some faded white detritus in the drapery folds and within the loops of the date numerals suggest a long-ago cleaning that has since toned over and is now suitable for third-party certification. No marks of any magnitude are seen, even with a loupe, and the devices are fairly sharp throughout. A nice candidate for a type set.
