Obverse 8 Reverse K.2
Obverse Diagnostic Point(s) Reverse Diagnostic Point(s)
Comments: During later die states, Reverse K develops an obvious die crack from rim through top of STAT(ES) coupled with a die crack from rim through AMER(I)CA. The three distinct die defects surrounding AMER(ICA) are also readily evident.
The earlier Obverse 8 die rust and pitting throughout Liberty's body and the lower shield remains visibile during this later die state.
