Obverse Diagnostic Point(s) Reverse Diagnostic Point(s)
Comments: Reverse O provides distinctive diagnostics. The Small Block S mintmark tilts sharply left. Below the mintmark, die scratches originate from the denticles. Finally, there is an X shaped pair of die scratches on the corn ear. This is the first time that I have seen an X shaped die scratch pair on a Liberty Seated dime die.
