Comments: Obverse 4 remains in a late die state as Variety 106c but is repaired with a second reverse die. The parallel die scratches to the right of Stars 1 and 3, from the earlier die state, have been polished away. The die crack at 12:00 now proceeds through Liberty's head and down to her neckline. This die crack is strong and very visible. A significant die crack starts to the right of Star 10 and connects Stars 11 through 13. Another faint die crack joins the base of 183 digits.

Reverse G is the second reverse die to be paired with Obverse 3. During this die pairing, Reverse G is rotated left by 23 degrees. I believe there exists a much later die state of Reverse G where a vertical die crack connects the (O)NE and D(I)ME with the lower left wreath.
