This obverse die used to strike 1798 BB-102, BB-103, and BB-107. The reverse is from same die used to strike BB-94 and BB-95. The die crack that developed on BB-95 from right wing down through I in AMERICA to border has now become heavier. Another crack is below ER in AMERICA. <BR>Estimated Value $1,100 - 1,200.
