Obverse 13: Date Far Left, High Level Date, Closed 5
Reverse O: Clashed Die, Rotated 23 Degrees Right
Obverse 13 Reverse O
Obverse Diagnostic Point
Comments: The date punch on Obverse 13 is shifted far left with Denticle Ruler measurement of DR -1B0. Note the heavy obverse rim cudding at 3:00 and effaced denticles from 3:00 to 5:00. This die pairing typically comes well struck though most Small Dates suffer from uneven strikes of one sort of the other.
The reverse die is heavily clashed behind DIME with the die clash marks being consistent with 23 degree reverse right misalignment.
Plate Coin: G. Fortin Collection, NGC MS62
