No corrosion or verdigris, and the color is an attractive glossy olive brown with lighter chocolate on the devices. The date and legends are complete and easily readable except for weakness at ON and CEN due to swelling associated with the die state. MDS, Breen state V, with a strong radial die crack through the D in UNITED to CEN and a lighter radial crack through the right foot of the A in STATES to the wreath. Estimate Value $400 - UP
