Obverse Diagnostic Point(s) Reverse Diagnostic Point(s)
Comments: Variety 108 is the first observation of Obverse 7 being paired with a Below Wreath reverse die. There is already significant denticle erosion on Obverse 7 during this die marriage suggesting prior usage. Reverse E already exhibits die cracking in the wreath and through the CC mintmark per the above illustration.
Previous/Subsequent Die Pairings - Below Wreath Obverse 7
During earlier die states, BW Obverse 7 was paired with an In Wreath reverse die (IW Variety 105) and is previously designated as IW Obverse 4. BW Obverse 7 will be paired with two additional Below Wreath reverse dies; see BW Varieties 109 and 110.
Previous/Subsequent Die Pairings - Below Wreath Reverse E
This is the first listing of Reverse E. At this time, I am unaware of a prior die marriage with Reverse E but the die cracks on the plate coin do suggest the possibility of earlier usage.
