For identification, there is a small tick mark at the bottom of the letter Y in LIBERTY. A short and shallow scratch exists in the right field to the left of stars 11 & 12. All of the obverse stars are sharp and there is evidence of light die polish lines below Liberty. The second 1 in the date is lower than the other 3 digits.
