Die die pair probably stayed together for the enite use of both dies, evident by the even erosion on both sides and the lack of other dientified obverse pairings. The strikes are moderate with the only identified crack being being a weak one along the last two right stars and the M of UNUM.

The reverse die is about as generic as they come. The only identified distinction is minor, but clear, doubling at the back of the upper arrowhead, and slight doubling for the middle one, from the hubbing of the die
