Miller 18-g.4 [mis-attributed), Very Fine. 147.6 grains. Rarity 3
(Scarce). Glossy, steel-gray, with a small streak of brassy color on the
left side of the obverse. Expert, barely detectable repair work on the
reverse and the rim at the ND of INDE. This example has much better
details than normal and shows the bulging at the base of the reverse that
affects the date. Nice centering and eye appeal."
