Size and Weight: The coin weighs ~28 gm of 92.5% silver and is ~37.5 mm in diameter.
References: It is KM #675.
Condition: I would grade the coin as beautiful toned extremely fine or better. It has all of its details well preserved with minimum wear commensurate with its age and circulated state. It has a few bag marks and some scratches which do not distract from the coin's beauty and quality. This is a scarce coin of low mintage (about 155,000) and a great find is such condition with such beautiful toning. The coin is problem free and has a nice appearance. Please see scan for additional condition information.
