Obverse 6: Doubled Die Obverse, Medium Level Date, Bases of 1 Thin, Open 6
Reverse F: Perfect Die
Obverse 6 Reverse F
Obverse Diagnostic Point(s)
Comments: On Obverse 6, die doubling is clearly visible on the letters within UNITED STATES. Strong doubling can be readily seen on (U)NITED and STA(TES). There is doubling on Liberty's nose and within her lips resulting in the nickname, "Doubled Lips variety". The bases of 1 digit are thin and the 6 digit is barely open.
Reverse F is perfect.
