Previous/Subsequent Die Pairings - In Wreath Obverse 7

Obverse 7 was initially employed to strike 1875-CC Below Wreath dimes. During its earlier die state, IW Obverse 7 was paired with BW Reverse A and exhibits the beginning of the radial die cracks but more subtle in nature. During the Below Wreath die pairing, I have label the obverse as BW Obverse 2. After the Below Wreath die marriage, IW Obverse 7 is paired with IW Reverse E and Reverse F. When paired with these In Wreath reverse dies, IW Obverse 7 becomes extensively cracked. I have seen more examples with the IW Reverse F pairing than IW Reverse E. Finally, Obverse 7 is paired with In Wreath Reverse D and is assumed to be in a terminal die state.
