Comments: Variety 114 presents a contrast between obverse and reverse die wear. Obverse 14 is well struck and appears to be a fresh obverse die. On the other hand, Reverse N is extremely worn and cracked throughout lacking details in most wreath elements. The right corn ear details are nearly eliminated. See the enhanced mapping of the reverse die cracks above to gain a sense of the Reverse N terminal die state.
