Obverse 1: Proof Die, Large Date, Repunched 7
Reverse A: Proof Die, Die Scratch Between Rim and S(T)ATES
Obverse 1.2 Reverse A.2
Comments: Date placement on 1837 proofs is identical to that of Large Date business strikes. The presence of repunching on the base of the 7 digit confirms the reuse of the Obverse 1 proof die for business strikes.
Reverse A has a die scratch between rim and S(T)ATES. Additional diagnostics include diagonal die line through top of E and a second through the middle of S in STATES.
