Owner Comments:

Repunched 52 Digits, date repunching with the 2 digit being strongly repunched at the base - This is the third and more common reverse die pairing with the repunched 52 obverse. Reverse E has several key diagnostics that allow quick differentiation from Reverse D and Reverse O. Immediately noticeable is the strong legend. A die line originates from the rim to the right of M and proceeds through (AM)ERICA then to the rim. Several die lines are evident between A(M)ERICA and the rim. A faint die crack is seen at the tops of letters UNIT(ED S)TATES. This die crack will degrade quickly and produce a retained cud during the die's terminal die state. Obverse 4 shows signs of die degradation with a die crack forming at the top of Liberty's head and down through Star 8, the Liberty cap and Star 9.
