Previous/Subsequent Die Pairings - Below Wreath Obverse 1

Obverse 1 is initially paired with BW Reverse B in its earliest die state, followed by this pairing with BW Reverse A, then two In Wreath reverse dies (Reverse C and Reverse D) and will show significant die erosion and heavy metal flow lines. While paired with In Wreath reverse dies, the obverse die is labeled as IW Obverse 6.

Previous/Subsequent Die Pairings - Below Wreath Reverse A

No additional die pairings with this reverse die, other than BW Obverse 2 are presently known. Additionally, no later die state examples with prominent die cracking have surfaces. More research is required to determine if Reverse A saw subsequent die pairings.
