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
