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



Comments: The stars on Obverse 1 are perfect. There is a trace of die clashing to the right of Liberty's elbow. Three large die defects are clearly visible on the D and the E's of the denomination. Reverse A is starting to show die erosion behind AMERICA, but there are no signs of any clash marks.
