Mostly silver-gray in tone, both sides do reveal splashes of bolder olive-russet and blue-gray patina in isolated areas around the peripheries. Faint traces of original luster are discernible as the coin dips into a light, the surfaces exhibiting only light wear and no sizeable abrasions. Boldly defined from a nicely centered strike, this solidly graded EF would fit nicely into a circulated type set or a collection built around early Dollar issues or die varieties.
