A nice coin that can be found in high grades. Like the die progression descriptions or not, this one has been well-described by others: http://ec2-13-58-222-16.us-east-2.compu ... Die_States.

As I have learned and others metion elsewhere, always a good idea to begin with the date (and mint mark for non-Philly coins) - not many options when you have such a far date that is slanted in this case.

Happy hunting!

It is worth noting that there is a difference between die breaks and die cracks.
