I have this coin that looks like a transition from FS903 to FS904. The top of the D looks very weak. Is there already a transition variety or too minor to worry about it? What do you all think?

    Why isn't that 904?

    I'm thinking FS-903, as the D top is supposed to be weak on that, but gone on FS-904.
    I don't think one can conclusively say it is weaker than most FS-903s, given that it's dirty there and not high grade.
    It gets pretty subjective when I'm trying to imagine what's there under the dirt based on few pixels that look
    a little brighter.

    Judging from the die cracks on the 3 high grade examples on PCGS CoinFacts,
    there are at least 2 reverse dies (and at least 3 obverse dies) for this variety, so there could easily already be some variation
    in the weakness of the D top.
