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



Comments: Variety 112 results when Obverse 8 and Reverse F are paired. Obverse is quite rusted with damage being evident in Liberty's chest area.

Previously Obverse 8 was paired with Reverse K which suffered a terminal die state cud at 12:00 and probably retired. During Variety 112, Obverse 8 is paired with Reverse F which is also worn and cracked. The legend on Reverse F is weak especially at AM(ERICA) and barely readable on lower grade specimens. The die crack through AMER(I)CA is primary diagnostic even during this late die state.
