This coin has a tremendously fatigued die. It is shattered across the obverse and reverse. Cracks run all over the coin. The biggest features are an obverse rim cud, a reverse die break by the wing and a radial die break going through the O of DOLLAR.
The obverse rim cud runs from about 10:00 through 12:30.
