Something doesn’t look right with this 1869 S Half Dollar? Take a look left of liberty’s elbow in the drapery, it looks like it is missing some of the drapery. It does match the die marriage of WB-2 but just looks off. What do you think?

This die got a lot of usage. The drapery on the obverse may have been lapped off. It probably is WB 2, has the horizontal die line and lump on the obverse. there is an interesting scratch or something on the reverse from the ribbon down to the olive leaves on the left side. Looks like a dipped coin.
