Variety Attribution: Obverse-Star 1 only 1/2 mm. from drapery. Date is 8 1/2 mm. Base of second 2 is much heavier, than base of first 2, the difference even more pronounced than in O-101. There was debris caught up in the die at the second 2 making collectors later on think that this is an overdate when it really is not. There are small rough lumps between upper inside points of star 12. Late states show cracks at date and stars 12 and 13 first from top of 8 to lower curl. Another from curl through lower point of star 13 to edge. A third from edge at second crack to tip of star 13 to star 12.
