Date is in the normal lateral position. (The ball of the 2 is not small. A smudge on the slab's plastic caused that in the shot.)
Some of the lower reverse has been polished, ground to a bevel at the device.
N of UNITED. The N shows tripling on the right side above the base.
E of STATES shows tripling above the center crossbar.
Doubling of the eagle's nostril is similar to what is typical on a C4/C3 reverse. There is also a spike gouge above it that blends into the design.
