The close-up is pretty shakey but you can just see that the die breaks two ways and rejoins again at the C ... a three piece die. How would you grade this coin? Circulated, but I think it looks more worn on the reverse than it is because it being a weak strike or old die. The dirt in a few denticals I picked out after I took these photos (hadn't really noticed it when it was booked). Thankfully it was superficial and came right out with a sharpened toothpick. Cheers
