Obverse 1                                               Reverse A


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



Comments: On Obverse 1, the date punch is position high due to the size of the date digits. (S)TATES has a broken upper loop. There is some weakness in (LIB)ERTY on the scroll.

On Reverse A, the Medium S mintmark is seen with clear upper and lower loops. A die file line is visible in the lower loop and should not be mistaken for mintmark repunching.

Plate Coin: G. Fortin Collection, AU50
