Obverse 7                                                Reverse G


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



Comments: Obverse 7 can be identified by the lightly punched date, which has a downward slope. The 5 digit is clearly open. The die scratches found at the left of Liberty's right elbow and pole are secondary diagnostics. Reverse G has moderate erosion of the denticles across from UNITED and AME(RICA), but no traces of any die cracks.
