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



Comments: Obverse 4 has developed a die crack starting at DR position 3 and proceeding through the base of the 1 and 8 digits, then looping under the 4 digit and through the base of the 3 digit. During this die state, Obverse 4 is paired with a second reverse die.

Reverse E exhibits die lines behind A(MERI)CA and a minor die line to the left of the foot of O(N)E. This reverse die also shows significant die flash around the bow loops. Reverse E is clashed, however Obverse 4 is found without clash marks.
