Obverse 7 Reverse J
Obverse Diagnostic Point(s) Reverse Diagnostic Point(s)
Comments: Obverse 7 exhibits a small die crack from Star 13 to the rim.
Reverse J shows multiple die cracks all appearing to originate from the center point of the die then outwards to the rim. Die cracks from wreath through (U)NIT(E)D, ST(AT)ES, O(F), A(M)ER(I)CA to rim are very evident. The die cracks line up as pairs across the reverse die and are equally spaced throughout the circumference of the die. This center point to rim die cracking pattern is very rare for a Seated Dime reverse die. The Small O mintmark is positioned left and high.
