Obverse 5 Reverse F
Obverse Diagnostic Point(s)
Comments: Obverse 5 can be diagnosed by a high downward sloping date. A die crack starts at the rim between Star 7 and Liberty's head then proceeds through Liberty's head to Star 8 and the cap and exits to the rim above Star 9. Another die crack joins Star 9 through Star 13. A die crack is seen at the base of the digits in the date.
Reverse F is perfect and boldly struck on the plate coin.
