It features an 1825 over 1824 overdate. It is very easy to indentify that the underlying digit is a "4" - unlike the more common BD-1 (1825/4/1 or 1825/1 or "Partial 4" variety in which the digit looks like a "1" or partially effaced "4") Depicted below is an example closeup image of the 1825/4 overdate (source of example image is courtesy of Heritage Auction Galleries):
