Reverse A: Perfect Die


Obverse 1                                                 Reverse A


Obverse Diagnostic Point(s)



Comments: Two diagnostic markers are available to identify Obverse 1. The first diagnostic point is a repunched 3 digit. There is repunching on the top and diagonal of the 3 digit, however the repunching is minor and difficult to see without high magnification. The second diagnostic point is the polished drapery area under Liberty's right arm. The drapery is partial and was not noted by Ahwash during his listing of this die pair as A-1.

Reverse A is a perfect die with no unfinished die area around the bow loops.
