Obverse: All stars 1 & 7 & 8 & 13 point between dentils. Mouth is slightly open. This LDS shows a faint crack from above “9”, across curls, and to star 11. (Obverse shared with O-117.)
Reverse: In the space left of stripe 4, a pointed protrusion shows in the lower third. Second “T” in “STATES” is low, and its lower right serif is very thin. Legend had medium size letters, larger than normal. A rusty die is cause for a clump of lumps below and above eagle’s head, and at various other locations. Arrowheads nearly touch “A”, and “U” nearly touches left wing tip. The LDS shows a crack spanning the entire reverse, also a lump on the “R”, showing at middle right. Right sides of “I” and “T” are in line.
