1. This discussion thread is of a letter from Leory Van Allen stating that the seventh left star has only one (1) spike.
2. Later die stages will show a vertical break through Liberty's nose into the field, with a chip just below the nose, as well as a crack through the top of the cap on the obverse. On the reverse, there is a thick crack through the O in ONE, left star, and U in UNITED, with a chip on the crack near the U.
