    But I think the die(s) were produced in Pennsylvania?

    It died in '82 when the mint made Zinc the primary metal with a copper jacket!

    MDS obverse and reverse. The obverse appears to show light flow lines and a light ridge ring developing, especially at 6 o’clock. The lettering is not flattening out yet and the VDB is still crisp. Same on the reverse lettering and light flow lines, plus I’m not seeing the infamous die chips or cracks in the shield. JMHO

    I also believe it to be mid die state. As @Danomite said there is a ridge ring starting to form.

    It has flat surfaces an a nice strike for a sinker. Just never forget the die state, better yet just studying your coins.
