"Choice Uncirculated" (illustrated above).  Ex - Early American History Auctions, Inc. Mail Bid Sale, April 20, 2002, Lot 994, where it was described (in part) as follows: "...Choice golden surfaces and great original mint luster adding to its natural eye appeal. The reverse shows some raised die rust on the right side, indicating an advanced state of the dies. Far more rare in Brass than in Copper! A very lovely piece having but some trivial friction on the highpoint of the sundial from grading even closer to Gem."
