Obverse- Sharp detail with far date. Un-natural few bag marks in fields. Numerous raised round dots in feilds from casting flaws. Die chip in nostil. Flatly struck hair over ear.
Reverse- Sharp detail. Doubled CC/CC same as 1884 CC Vam-5 that is likely copied coin and not re-used after 5 years. Broad die gouges thur D of UNITED and E-D of ONE DOLLAR. Flaw at top of U in UNITED with unusual high displaced serifs. Small die chip in right inside of lower loop of left S in STATES. Un-natural few bag marks in feilds. Flatly struck eagle's breast.
Edge- Reeding count of 180 is incorrect for CC coins which have 177 or 178. Reeding tops dished-in with slidemarks instead of rounded smooth tops.
