Comments: Variety 101 features the pairing of Obverse 1 and Reverse A. During this pairing, both dies are perfect and the devices are well struck.

The mintmark placement on Reverse A is similar to two other In Wreath dies and needs careful attention during attributions. Please see the following comparison of mintmark positions on In Wreath Reverse A, Reverse G and Reverse J.

This is the only die pairing utilizing IW Obverse 1 known to me.

Reverse A will continue to progressively crack while being paired with three other obverse dies. See IW Varieties 102 (Obverse 2), 103 (Obverse 3) and 105 (Obverse 4) as the later pairing sequence.
