Obverse Diagnostic Point(s)


Reverse Diagnostic Point(s)

Comments: The date punch is better centered on Obverse 2 than on Obverse 1. There are several diagonal die lines in the gown immediately to the right of the shield as highlighted above.

Reverse B is lightly clashed and has a die crack through the lower right oak leaf.

Short Flag 1 Variety 102 is also difficult to locate in EF or better grades with the plate coin being the finest seen by the author.
