Obverse 5 Die States
  1. Perfect die.
No later die states have been observed.


Reverse B

Reverse B can be identified by several light die lines on the scroll around UST in TRUST. These can be seen in the following photo. These die lines will be difficult to see on coins grading less than VF. Note that the die line through US is very similar to one found on Reverse C. Be careful not to confuse these dies.
