Comments: Obverse 3 is paired with a second reverse die, which is rotated 18 degrees right.
Reverse D is perfect during this early die state. I have found rust free Variety 104 examples to be difficult to locate. Most later die state examples exhibit progressive levels of damage as Reverse D is rusting. The ME in DIME and the UN in UNITED are the prime areas of inspection for determining the level of damage to Reverse D. See Variety 104a and 105 listings for examples of the progressive nature for Reverse D rust damage.
