"VF-25" (illustrated above).  Ex - Early American History Auctions, Inc. Mail Bid Sale, April 20, 2002, Lot 985, where it was described (in part) as follows: "Dark brown surfaces, with lighter legends and devices. The surfaces show a subtle, uniform porosity that has been softened by subsequent wear. A natural planchet void affects the top of the obverse. This piece easily bests the only two other examples we've offered in the past six years."
