Obverse: Close date, 02 closer than other figures. The 8 centered between 1 and O but too low. “Pocket” at throat and “collar” at neck-line, at base on most, a product of die clashing. The 1 is very close to lowest curl, but does not quite touch. A “dot” is before upper lip, under nose. On the left, star pairs 1-2 and 2-3 are closer together than are star pairs 5-6 and 6-7.
Reverse: Same die used to coin 1801 BB-212, described earlier, but herewith repeated: The point of the leftmost arrowhead is under the left edge of the left serif of N in UNITED. The point of upper part of eagle’s beak touches down on a point of a star slightly back from extreme star point. Only 12 arrows show plainly. First A in AMERICA touches third feather, and is connected by die crack to fourth feather. Leaf points more towards left corner of base of I in AMERICA.
