Comments: In a later die state, Obverse 2 is paired with a new reverse die. Obverse 2 exhibits die cracks from the left and right sides of the base out to the rim. The die crack from the right side exits at the foot, through AMERIC(A) and to the rim below AMERI(C)A. There is a small die crack between the lower loops of the first and second 8 digits in the date.

The Medium S mintmark on Reverse D is positioned well left and should be easily recognized.
