Small Date, Reverse Horizontal Die Crack, reverse die crack from rim through UNIT(E)D and wreath to (ON)E - The date on this obverse die (Obverse 3) is slightly larger than the other Small Date obverse (Obverse 2), probably due to a stronger placement within the die. The date is also higher than Obverse 2, with the 7 digit pointing between two denticles. The reverse has developed a significant die crack starting from the rim at 9:00, through UNIT(E)D, the wreath, (O)NE and ending at DI(ME). This reverse die state also shows considerable erosion around the legend.
