Obverse 3: Small Date, 7 Digit Points Between Two Denticles
Reverse C: Die Alignment Left 6 Degrees
Comments: The date punch on Obverse 3 is slightly larger than that seen on Obverse 2. The date is also closer to the base than Obverse 2 with the 7 digit pointing between two denticles.
During the initial Obverse 3 and Reverse C die pairing, the reverse rotation is 5-6 degrees left. Subsequent re-use of the same die pair (Variety 103a and 103b) will result in different reverse die alignments especially when Reverse C develops a long horizontal die crack through UNIT(E)D into the wreath and between ONE DIME.
