Obverse 5.2 Reverse G
Obverse Diagnostic Point(s) Reverse Diagnostic Point(s)
Comments: Obverse 5 is paired with a second reverse die, Reverse G. During the initial pairing, the dies appear to be clashed based on the diagnostics from the plate coin. Obverse die clash marks are visible to the left of Liberty left hand and immediately right of Liberty's right elbow. On the reverse, die clashing is easily seen behind the letters DI(ME). The severity of the die crack through the date on Obverse 5 is consistent with the last seen die state when paired with Reverse F.
On Reverse G, there is a very faint die crack from UN(I)TED to the wreath. This is an important diagnostic for identifying later die states.
