Obverse 4                                                Reverse C


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



Comments: A pairing of Reverse C occurs with Obverse 4. The date digits on Obverse 4 are weakly punched into the working die. There is a space between the 84 digits due to the weakness of the date punching.

Reverse C features an abundance of die lines between the right rim and wreath. A series of parallel die lines originates from the right rim into AM(ERICA). Another significant die line passes through (S)TATES.
