Variety Attribution: Obverse-Stars all large and sharp. Date is 9 3/4 mm. and small with decided slant to left. Star 12 has a small extra point down toward curl and upper lip has small defect giving appearance of a hairlip. Most specimens show a fine die crack at base of date extending left toward stars. There is a fine die crack at base of 18, which circles to the left, becomes heavier, and now boldly extends to star 12 and 13 to the right. Weakness of strike is considerably evident at chin.

Reverse- 50 C. is 1 3/4 mm. and well centered. Arrow to A is 3/4 mm. A rough and more or less round lump or mound is just to left of curve of C. Arrowheads are separated. AM are even and lightly joined at base. Right side of D is centered over stand of E. This is the same as reverse F from 1809 (with cracks). The defect lump between 0 and C. still distinct, but the rows of segment like lumps are mostly missing. Only a few between the arrowheads are still visible.
