Comments: After considerable searching, a business strike example from Obverse 4 proof die was located at the 2013 ANA Convention. Obverse 4 is well struck with sharp legend letters including the (S)TATES and (O)F. The date position is measured as DR 0R with slight downward slope.
Reverse D exhibits several important die cracks as diagnostics. See the above mapping of die cracks in the left and right wreath devices.
