Obverse 3: Low Date, Slight Upward Slope, Perfect Date
Reverse A.2: Large Die Defect on DI(M)E
Obverse 3 Reverse A.2
Obverse Diagnostic Point(s) Reverse Diagnostic Point(s)
Comments: The date punch on Obverse 3 is lower than either date positions on Obverse 1 or Obverse 2. The digits in the date are complete and without defects. The (S)TATES is also perfect. Obverse 3 is paired with Reverse A to produce business strike coinage.
Reverse A can be easily diagnosed by looking for the large die defect on the right upright of DI(M)E.
