Obverse 1.2                                            Reverse B


Obverse Diagnostic Point(s)                    Reverse Diagnostic Point(s)



Comments: Obverse 1 appears to have been polished or lapped before being paired with Reverse B. This readily available die state exhibits a weak base above the date and spaced 8 and 4 digits in the date. The legend typically shows weakness at (OF AM)ERICA.

The Small S on Reverse B is well centered in both the horizontal and vertical directions.
