 Obverse 7: Cracked Obverse #3, Star 13 Repunched

Reverse H: Die Scratches Behind Ribbon Bow and Knot


Obverse 7                                                Reverse H


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



Comments: Obverse 7 is the last of the obverse dies with a bisecting die crack. In this case, the die crack originates at Star 7 and proceeds through Liberty's left shoulder, across her body and left leg and finally exits below the foot to the rim. Star 13 is strongly repunched. I have yet to locate an early die state example of Obverse 7 without the obverse cracks.

Die scratches are present behind the ribbon knot and the lower right portion of the wreath on Reverse H. Otherwise, Reverse H is a problem free die during this die state.
