Obverse 4                                               Reverse E.2


Obverse Diagnostic Point(s)                   Reverse Diagnostic Point(s)



Comments: Cracked Obverse #1 is seen with a significant die crack starting at the rim between Stars 6 and 7, then through Liberty's left side and exiting through the shield point into a space between the 1 and 8 digits to the rim. Surprisingly the obverse still comes well struck even with the die crack severity.

Reverse E exhibits considerable die erosion between the rim and (UNITE)D with a small die crack from the rim to lower upright of (U)NITED.
