1793 C-2 R3 AG3+.
Rather glossy steel and chocolate brown. The surfaces are smooth and attractive except for a planchet void at D-ST and a thinner one at AM (as struck). The date and legends are easily readable although parts are fading into the rim due to honest wear. Struck with the reverse rotated 45 degrees CW relative to the normal head-to-foot die orientation.
Estimated Value $1,000-UP.
