Obverse Diagnostic Point(s)                  Reverse Diagnostic Point(s)



Comments: During this late die state, Obverse 6 is paired with a second reverse die. Obverse 6 shows heavy erosion of the denticles across all rim denticles. Reverse D features a CC mintmark that is positioned low and far right. The distance or spacing between the two C's is considerable, but not as large as that of Reverse H commonly known as the "Wide CC Mintmark" variety. There are several soft die scratches in the upper left wreath at approximately 10:00. Reverse D is in an interim die state and exhibits radial die cracks throughout the wreath and bow areas.

Previous/Subsequent Die Pairings - In Wreath Reverse D

After being paired with terminal die state In Wreath Obverse 7, Reverse D is paired with In Wreath Obverse 6. Based on observations, the Obverse 6 and Reverse D die pairing struck a substantial amount of Carson City coinage. During the production of that coinage, Reverse D develops multiple die cracks. No other die pairings for Reverse D are currently known.
