Comments: On this later die state example, both Obverse 5 and Reverse G show heavy metal flow lines in the peripheral areas. The repunching on Star 9 is faint but still visible. There is a small rim cud on Obverse 5 at 3:00.

On Reverse G, a well defined die crack is visible from the rim, through AME(R)ICA, then to the left wreath. Another die crack can be seen from the rim, through UN(I)TED and into the wreath. Fainter die cracks are visible from the rim through O(F) to the wreath and from the rim to (S)TATES.
