Reverse E: Die Crack Rim to STAT(E)S, Die Line Between Left Wreath and Bow
Obverse 5 Reverse E
Obverse Diagnostic Point(s) Reverse Diagnostic Point(s)
Comments: Both Obverse 5 and Reverse E are found well struck. The key diagnostic for Obverse 5 is the set of horizontal die lines behind or through Liberty's right elbow. Distinguishing Obverse 4 from Obverse 5 by date position only will be difficult. Use the horizontal die lines as a diagnostic marker. A die line between the left wreath and bow is Reverse E's primary diagnostic. There is also a faint die crack from rim to STAT(E)S on the plate coin.
