Obverse Diagnostic Point(s) Reverse Diagnostic Point(s)
Comments: Obverse 19 exhibits a Large Knob 6 date punch, which has been deeply struck into the obverse die. The date shows the same Denticle Ruler position and slope as Obverse 16, however the date punch on Obverse 16 is shallower. A fairly obvious die scratch is visible across Liberty's upper chest. Faint die clashing is also observed on Obverse 16.
Reverse Q die exhibits die clash marks through DIM(E). Few 1876 Carson City reverse dies are seen with die clashing.
