Toned evenly on the obverse and reverse with typical silver-gray with deeper blue accents around the rims. There are some scattered toning specks and tiny drift marks in the planchet, as often seen. The strike is average with the obverse stars lacking some of their radial lines. Clean surface quality as a loupe is needed to find the scattered contact from brief circulation. Condition census quality for the date, major type or variety collector, all of whom need an example of this issue, and a prize for the specialist.
