Hello Everyone... I'm trying to mate up this coin with images from Coin Facts and I'm getting nowhere quick. I'm pretty certain it's the 2nd Hair Style, but I can't mate up the die break characteristics wthe ones from the web site. ANy assistance would be greatly appreciated. Best, Leo

    For fun, I tried comparing with the photos on CoinFacts,
    and I believe I found your obverse die cracks in the AU-55 photo above.
    The reverse does have a matching clash mark at OF, but that may be fairly common.
    S-185.
    Did you stop short of that one?

    S185 it is, IMO.
    Late die state, 5/6?
