Also note the small rim cud below the date on this LDS example. This cud is too small to be listed. This VAM also has an unlisted clashed state. See 1889-O VNA Varieties.

The reverse has the Mint Mark set clearly closer
to the ribbons above it than the letters below it. There is also a slight tilt to the right.
Only one reverse die has been noted paired with this obverse.
