Comments: Obverse 13 exhibits a long die crack starting at the left of the date punch, then proceeds upward through the left base, through the bottoms of UNITED STATES and into Liberty's head. The die crack terminates on the right side of Liberty's head with another die crack starting directly below it and moving right to the rim above the cap.

Reverse M is perfect with a Small S mintmark that is positioned left and high below the bow knot.
