Obverse 1 Reverse A.3
Comments: Reverse A is rarely found in a very late die state where the reverse die is terminal and most likely retired after striking dimes consistent with the plate coin. There is a large retained cud direcly below the left and right ribbon ends and another cud forming between 8:00 and 9:00.
