33B III21 · C3l (Dbld UNITED & Wreath, Clashed Obv In, Counterclash, Pitting Wing) (189) I-3 R-6
Reverse C3l- Band of rusted die pitting from lower right edge of eagle's left wing down to tip of upper arrow head. Two diagonal die gouges at top right of A in DOLLAR.
COMMENTS: The double "gouges" above the A of DOLLAR are the primary die marker with the pitting only appearing on the LDS version. Sometime before the pitting forms under the wing, rims cuds form from above the last U of PLURIBUS all the way to the top right star but are not mentioned in the official description since they do not enter the field (see third picture below).
