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


Comments: Ahwash labeled the Obverse 1 die as the "Irregular Date" due to date height measurements. He measured the 842 digits to be 1.2mm while the 1 digit was measure at 1.1mm. The macro photograph of the date digits does not readily show this date height difference. Instead use the date position of DR 0B1 as the diagnostic for the obverse die and variety. On Reverse A, a faint diagnostic die crack from the rim through A(M)ERICA to the wreath is seen and was mentioned by Ahwash.
