Obverse 15 Reverse M
Obverse Diagnostic Point(s)
Comments: Both obverse and reverse dies exhibit radial die cracks forming concentric rings. The obverse die states are most evident through (STATES), then through Liberty's head and out to the field area above the cap. A faint die crack connects the lower loops of the 888 digits in the date. There is a minor misplaced 8 digit in the gown directly above the pendant. This misplaced date appears to be the top loop of an 8 digit. The reverse die exhibits excessive die cracking in the lower left wreath.
