Obverse Diagnostic Point(s)


Reverse Diagnostic Point(s)

Comments: Obverse 1 and Reverse A are proof dies that do not match the known set of dies identified by Ahwash or reported by Greer. The digits in the date are very thin. There is a die scratch within Liberty's left armpit.

Reverse A appears to be a left over die from 1878. There are die cracks along the outer edges of the leaves in the wreath. More research will be needed to make a potential association with a Type II 1878 reverse die.
