Comments: Kam Ahwash listed this variety as A-6 in his Encyclopedia but provided no pictures. Kam also stated that the variety had a Small Knob date punch obverse with a repunched 1 paired with a Type II reverse.
I located an example of Kam's A-6 variety during 2009 which completes the illustration of all Ahwash 1876 Type II reverse varieties (A-4 through A-8). The repunching above the flag of the 1 digit is evident with a 10X or better glass.
Type II Reverse C is substantially cracked and mapped in the above reverse die illustration.
