 Obverse 4.2: Shattered Obverse #1, Closed 54

Reverse D: Faint Die Crack Tops of UNITED


Obverse 4.2                                                Reverse D


Obverse Diagnostic Point(s)                       Reverse Diagnostic Point(s)



Comments: Obverse 4 continues to degrade leading to a significant late die state which is recognized and listed in the Top 100 Varieties set. Die cracks nearly encircle the obverse through the stars, date and arrows. The 54 digits in the date touch. Surprisingly, this late die state example still comes well struck.

Reverse D is nearly perfect with only traces of a die crack at the tops of the letters in UNITED.
