O-113 R3 below, O-113a R4 at bottom
A in STATES cut over E

The O-113 die state is said to be R3 and the 113a die state R4, but there is only a  single existing Mint State 113 that has not appeared in 30 years, with only a single AU50 and significantly fewer appearances overall than the 113a state. The 113a state has perhaps 3 MS survivors and a couple of AU's, most of the rest of this marriage is lower grade.

Variety Attribution O-113: Obverse-Star 1 just pierces loop of curl. Star 2 and second curl are close together. A rough broken patch between date and star 15 is diagnostic of this obverse.
O-113a: Rough breaks of defects at stars 12 to 15 and a die crack joining LIBERTY at top.

Reverse- This reverse easily recognized as the word STETES was first cut in error, then recut correctly, serifs of E plainly visible. 18 berries 9 left and 9 right.
