Trying to get better at grading. I think I tend to be too conservative... What do you folks think?

Also, I assume that is a die crack to the left of the date and left of the "E" in liberty?

Interesting! This die has a complete crack from north to south with a branch crack to the east.

That die probably didn't last much longer after it struck that coin.

I suspect part of that die eventually broke off. That's getting pretty bad.

Very cool die crack. You have to wonder if that die ended up in the trash at the end of the day.

I think it would qualify as VF-20. Nice, original key date!
