"About Uncirculated" (illustrated above). EAHA 04/2002:897, where it was described (in part) as follows: "Uncirculated, with much original silver luster present on both the obverse and reverse. Inspection under magnification reveals faintly hairlined surfaces from a decades old cleaning. The top of the obverse shows a trivial crack, as made and a minor ding appears on the rim at 3:00. Overall, this piece is very pleasing and shows great details. This was the first coinage authorized for the British Colonies in America!", unsold - EAHA 12/2002:910, the grade lowered to "About Uncirculated.", unsold - EAHA 06/2004:868, $632.50

A few minor surface marks in the left obverse field, scarcely visible with a glass. The obverse die has a crack to the right of the horse through the peripheral lettering."
