A few wispy marks as this came out of a non-numismatic accumulation, but no major marks (the void at 11:00 on the Reverse rim is a planchet flaw). An original example, which is unusual as almost all have been dipped or cleaned over the years as they tend to tone oddly. The reason is the "billon" alloy that the Treasury used to try to keep these from being melted down, the first example of fiat coinage struck by the U. S.
