Comment: A partially incused In is seen at the Liberty's Neck Line (Arrowed). Touching the Neck Line is the lower portion of the I and in the field to the left of the I is the left side of the n. This feature was created by the clashing of the first word in the Reverse Motto, In God We Trust. Additionally, a prominent Obverse Clash Line can be seen exiting Liberty's Neck Line. This line was created by the clashing of the Eagle's Right Wing. Comment: NEED TO CHECK THIS OUT - COUNTER CLASH? (Arrowed).

Comment: A counter clash can be see in the lower portion of back of the Phrygian Cap (Arrowed). Comment: A very small part of the s in the last word of the Reverse Motto can be seen just at the Hair Vee (Arrowed). The clash event experienced by the dies produced this letter transfer.

Comment: Comment: The line exiting Liberty's Jaw Line is either a scratch or clash mark. If it is a clash mark, that feature would have been created by the clashing of outer feathers of the Eagle's Right Wing.

Comment: The next four Images shows what appears to be a collar clash. However, it's my understanding that the feature on the rim is most likely the result of the way the reeded edge makes contact with the slab gasket Comment:
