Reverse Diagnostic Point(s)
Comments: Open 3 Obverse 1 is initially paired with a late die state reverse die. When paired with Open 3 Obverse 1, the reverse die exhibits late die state cracks. There is the appearance that the die is prepared to break apart at 3:30 with the potential for an internal cud.
Open 3 Reverse A was previously paired with two Closed 3 obverse dies (See 1873 Closed 3 Reverse F). During the earlier reverse pairings with Closed 3 Obverse 6 and Obverse 7, the die develops a progressive set of die cracks that form a radial ring on the outer portion of the wreath.
