Rather glossy dark olive brown and steel. Few minor contact marks, including a couple light ones on the jaw and neck and a pair of nicks at the top of the second T in STATES. The first strike was normal and centered on the planchet, but it failed to eject completely and was struck a second time 95% off center creating a tab at stars 3-6. The obverse tab contains dentils from the die, but the reverse was pinched against a blank planchet (the one for which this strike was intended), and the pinch left a strong beveled indent on that side of the tab. M-LDS, Manley state 5.0.

The reverse is rotated 140 degrees CCW. A great mint error that comes with a nice provenance. Ex George Trostel, McCawley & Grellman Auctions/Superior 6/3/2002:2358-R. Tettenhorst (The Davy Collection), McCawley & Grellman Auctions/Goldbergs 9/19/2010:288 (Goldberg lot ticket included).
