Variety 109

 Obverse 9: Medium Date, Downward Slope

Reverse H: Perfect Die


Obverse 9                                                  Reverse H

 Obverse Diagnostic Point

Comments: Obverse 9 exhibits a date punch that has a strong downward slope. There are faint traces of obverse die rust on Liberty's mid section that become recognizable once a specialist understands the later die state of Obverse 9. Reverse H is perfect.

Plate Coin: G. Fortin Collection, PCGS MS66
