Stars 3 and 4 on the left are slightly closer together than the others. Stars 6 and 7 are slightly wider. On the right, stars 11 and 12 as well as stars 14 and 15 are closer than the rest. Star 1 touches the bottom of the lowest curl; the curl continues to almost completely close a circle. Star 8 is closer to base of L than star 9 is to base of Y. Star 15 is far from the bust, exactly 2 mm. from the bust tip. Wide date with the 1 and 7 wider apart than the other digits. The bust is high in the field, over 2.5 mm. above the 5 and under 1 mm. from LIBERTY at its closest point. LIBERTY is wide with LIB more widely spaced than the letters in BERTY.
Reverse: Two leaves under each wing of eagle. Nine berries on the left branch, 10 on the right branch. Two berries inside the right branch, at the eagle’s tail. No letters of the legend touch any leaf. The T of UNITED touches the eagle’s dexter (observer’s left) wing, while the R of AMERICA appears to touch the sinister wing but actually just misses. A berry on the outside of the right branch is below the extreme left foot of the first A in AMERICA. A die scratch extends into the field from a dentil left of the first A in AMERICA.
