A “STATES UNITED” variety. Sharpness VF20 but covered with fine to moderate roughness and there are a few small, shallow planchet flakes on the reverse. No verdigris and the only significant contact marks are two rather strong rim nicks at the top of the obverse. Bluish steel and medium brown blending to darker olive brown in protected areas. Rare late die state with several cracks on the reverse and a small cud break at NE in ONE. The date is strong and the legends are clear except for weakness on ITED due to the die failure in that area. Weight 137.2 grains.
