Obverse 1 Reverse A
Obverse Diagnostic Point(s) Reverse Diagnostic Point(s)
Comments: Obverse 1 is very rusted with pitting on Liberty's face, neck area, breasts and arms. The legend is filled and badly pitted. A rim cud appears from 8:00 to 3:00. The Large Knob 6 date punch is close to the denticles with the 1 digit nearly touching the DR 1 denticle.
Reverse A is rusted, but not as severely as Obverse 1. There is a die blob above the bow knot and a rim cud at 12:00. Die doubling is visible above (D)IME and the I is irregular. There are die cracks on both the left and right sides of the wreath. Reverse A will be again paired with Obverse 5, the Doubled Die Obverse.
