Obverse Diagnostic Point(s)



Reverse Diagnostic Point(s)


Comments: There is a misplaced digit on Obverse 5. The misplaced digit is located on the base directly above the mid point of the 8 and 2 date digits. I suspect that the misplaced digit is the top of an 8 digit. The 2 digit in the date shows repunching within the right side of the upper loop. The top of the 2 digit is clearly broken. There is a die crack from STATE(S), through Liberty's head to the cap.

Reverse E has a die defect in the center of the diagonal, another least obvious is found on the right upright. There are circular die cracks throughout the reverse wreath.
