Obverse IV1 - Some left and right stars slightly doubled.
Reverse D2a - Fine die scratches in various directions on over polished tail feathers around eagle’s right leg, and between eagle’s left wing and body. Die marker- Short horizontal die scratch on sixth feather from bottom of eagle's right wing.

The E-to-D crack shown below appears to only be present on late die state examples.

This coin has a crack through the point of Liberty's neck and between the lowest two left stars (and notice the faint remnants of a very old sideways-left crack from the bottom of 19 to the rim. There's a similar old, faint crack from 21 that goes sideways-right to the rim):

There's also a good crack through the M in UNUM:

This odd line between IN and the top of the eagle's wing is old and faint, and it doesn't seem to me to be dirt or toning:

The scribbles are basically long gone, but I think I see a couple of bolder ones in a V shape near the bottom-left of the right scribbles area:
