Glossy medium brown with frosty light brown in protected areas and a dusting of very fine carbon tucked up against the bottom of the wreath ribbon. The planchet is smooth, free of any hint of corrosion that seems to plague this tough variety.

MDS, Manley state 2.0, showing a light die crack through the top of MERICA. A sharp, attractive example in spite of the minor marks. Our grade is EF40 net VF35.
