Obverse Diagnostic Point(s)

Reverse Diagnostic Point(s)

Comments: Variety 120 was first identified by Benny Haimovitz during June 2017 and shared with the author at the Orlando Summer FUN show. Obverse 20 has few diagnostics points with the date position being the primary attribution parameter. Obverse die is heavily clashed with clash marks to the left of the left facing hand and also to the right of the drapery.

Reverse T is substantially degraded with a long heavy die crack in the middle left wreath and other minor radial die cracks throughtout the cereal wreath. These die cracks are mapped in the above illustration.
