This one is interesting, as it is clearly RPM-001 in hand, but doesn't seem to show the last die stage markers.

Nice example TB.

About the die cracks missing from the right wheat to the rim.
The obverse doesn't look to be an early die state.

Stage D had the reverse die changed out but all the images of markers show die cracks from the right wheat to the rim.

All I can suggest is that your coin is in an early die state of this new reverse die before the cracks appear.

EDIT:
I just noticed the rim definition/detail looks a little soft so maybe the die cracks were polished away or low pressure caused their demise?
Words of encouragement are one of the major food groups.
We need to consume them regularly to thrive and grow.
