Obverse Diagnostic Point(s)



Reverse Diagnostic Point(s)

Comments: During an interim die state, the primary Obverse 3 diagnostic is a die crack from rim at 12:00 downward through Liberty's head and stopping at her ear. Also during this interim die state, there are six faint and parallel die scratches originating from the top of the rock to the right of Star 1 and proceeding upward to a point ending at the right of Star 3. Another irregular die scratch starts at Liberty's right breast and ends at intersection of the pole and Liberty's shoulder. Star 8 is boldly repunched.

Reverse F shows die erosion behind DI(ME). The reverse die is rotated left 18 degrees.
