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



Comments: Both the Obverse 4 and Reverse E dies have eroded. Obverse 4 has die cracks from the foot through AMERI(CA) to the rim and from the left base to the rim below (U)NITED. On the reverse, a major die crack has formed on the left side of the wreath along with signs of rust. The die crack is significant and could potentially lead to a complete die break and internal die cud formation.
