Obverse Diagnostic Point(s)
Comments: Obverse 12 can be diagnosed by a diagonal die scratch from the left base up to the rim. Use this diagnostic for Obverse 12 since the date positions on Obverse 2 and Obverse 12 are very similar. Separating the Obverse 2 and Obverse 12 varieties will require attention to die scratches as key markers.
Reverse L is perfect.
