All major details are pleasingly clear but the surfaces show the effects of jewelry use at one time. Careful examination shows subtle indentations in the denticles suggesting that old, non-destructive prong-mounts were used and no solder was applied to the coin. Although it has had its share of adventures over two centuries, this piece is still a reasonably well-preserved example of the first type of the first date of coinage and will repay careful study and evaluation.
