Additional Photos:

Photos below show the neck clash above the wing extends beyond motto, indicating a letter transfer on the obverse is likely.

Reverse clashing is shown below - from Liberty's profile (chin to lips) and the cap-vee.

Obverse clashing from wreath shown below - Liberty's profile and in the cap-vee.

Peripheral cracks may be on later die stage (clashed) only.
