Type I - Variety 109
Obverse 7: Medium Level Date, Clashed Die
Reverse H: Heavily Clashed Die
Obverse 7 Reverse H
Comments: Obverse 7 has date placement that is nearly identical to Obverse 2 but is slightly more left on Obverse 7 and could be considered as DR 0B1. Both obverse and reverse dies are strongly clashed. Obverse 7 die clash marks are different than those on Obverse 2, another diagnostic point. Reverse H is clashed in right area between denomination and wreath.
Take care in attempting to diagnose Obverse 2 and Obverse 7 dies as the author assume that both dies were one and same for a number of years until Tim Cook provided this heavily die clashed example.
