The clash marks of obverse are prominent and their location indicate normal coin alignment at the time of the clashing event. However, reverse is rotated to a high degree and shows no signs of clashing. Therefore, it may well be that te obverse was paired with another reverse prior to this die pairing.

Obverse with a slight upward slope of the date. Features clash marks to the left and top of the portrait. The following die cracks are noted:
1. Die crack from the denticles at 1:15 connecting the tops of OF and exiting at 2:15.
2. Die crack from 9:30 connecting the tops of ITED of UNITED
3. Die crack from 9:30 connecting the tops of STATES and exiting at the denticles at 11:45.
4. Die crack from the denticles at 10:15 joins the crack from #3 and exits through the denticles at 11:00
Obv. EDS: Retained cud forms in the area defined by the die crack from #4.
Obv. LDS: Full cud has now formed in the area defined by the die crack from #4.
Reverse is rotated 178 degrees clockwise. During the later die state, reverse exhibits weakness in strike at the rim from 7:00 to 7:30 due to the formation of the cud on obverse.
