Perhaps the most pronounced of the overdates in the Bust Half world. Not many were produced prior to the die breaking up, but with the look of that 5/4, if you get one of these you will be hard pressed to give it up! The finest known are just a couple of AU55's.

Variety Attribution O-103: Obverse- Point of star 13 is close to upper edge of bust near fold of drapery. Stars are flat and BE in LIBERTY weak. Date a wide 9 1/2 mm. from 1 to crossbar of 4. This over-date easily recognized because 1 does not touch lower curl, or star 1 star 1 second curl as they do on obverse 1. A faint die crack from nose extends upward to edge between Y and star 8.
O-103a: The die crack from nose becomes heavier and extends from edge to nose and across bust to curls and splits to form a triangular break from a loosening flake on the die, from the edge below star 1 covering all of star 1 and 3/4 of star 2 and converging to an apex at the curls. this flake causing all of star 1 and the covered portion of star 2 to be weak.
O-103b: The triangular flake has now broken entirely out of the die, completely oblitering star 1 and all but rwo upper points of star 2.

Reverse-4 berries on olive breanch, three below have long stems and one above no stem. 13 arrows, second arrowhead below right stand of N, ME joined at base. Eagle's beak comes down on upper side of star point. Right base of F missing. Leaf nearly touches base of I just right of center.
