Obverse 2: Die Cracks Through Liberty's Head and Left Arrow
Reverse B.2: Severe Die Cracks In Lower Right Wreath
Obverse 2 Reverse B
Obverse Diagnostic Point(s) Reverse Diagnostic Point(s)
Comments: Obverse 2 continues to degrade with stronger die cracks throughout the obverse. There are heavy metal flow lines from Stars 10 - 13 to rim. See the enhanced mapping to determine the exact location of the die cracks. I have photographed the diagnostic areas with the heaviest die cracks.
Reverse B is in a middle die state. A severe die crack is evident on the lower right wreath leaves near AME(RICA).
Plate Coin: G. Fortin Collection, AU50
