"Extremely Fine" (illustrated above).  Early American Numismatics, Inc., offered in April, 2001 for $995.00 - Early American History Auctions, Inc. Mail Bid Sale, August 25, 2001, Lot 1471, where it was described as follows: "139.3 grs. Rarity-6. A very attractive example displaying the very late die state of this scarce variety. Weakness of the die at center on both sides and having two tiny die breaks on the reverse which are not mentioned in the Kessler reference. An extremely well centered coin, with nice defect free surfaces, but for one small void on the sun dial. The color is a very nice medium chestnut with some slightly deeper tones in the legends, which tends to highlight them and adds to the eye appeal. The full face of the sun is clear."
