Comments: The 5 digit in the date is nearly closed and should appear closed on lower grade examples. A die defect is visible on Liberty's right arm near intersection of elbow and pole. There is a faint die crack from the back of Liberty's head to Star 8.

Reverse A has a significant die line from the top of right bow ribbon end to the right stem above it. There is considerable die flash around the bow loops.
