 Obverse 4: Lightly Clashed Die

Reverse D: Cracked Die Under Ribbon Ends


Obverse 4                                               Reverse D


Reverse Diagnostic Point(s)


Comments: Obverse 4 is lightly clashed to the left of Liberty's face and left shoulder. Reverse D has begun to crack. A long die crack starts at the rim below the right ribbon end and proceeds up through the ribbon end, across through the left ribbon end and left stem and back to the rim between the left stem end and (U)NITED. Another die crack is visible on the tops of (UNI)TED. Finally another die crack is forming on the lower left leaves of the wreath. Reverse D will continue to crack and will be used to strike 1853 dimes until the die is completely shattered and broken apart. See the extremely late die state at Variety 104a.
