Obverse Diagnostic Point(s)                   Reverse Diagnostic Point(s)



Comments: Obverse 3 is easily identified by obvious repunching below the 184 digits. Bold die scratches between the rim and Stars 12 and 13 are secondary diagnostic points for this obverse die. These obverse die lines between rim and Stars 12 and 13 subside with die wear.

Obverse 3 (Repunched 184) is 4 to 5 times more available than Obverse 4 (Repunched 841). However, only several examples of Obverse 3 paired with Reverse C have been seen. Obverse 3 is typically seen paired with a progressively rusting die (Variety 104) that is listed in this reference source as Reverse D. Use the die crack from the rim through the first S in STATES to wreath to identify Variety 103.
