Variety 109

 Obverse 9: High Date, Slight Downward Slope, Weak Base and (LIB)ERTY

Reverse F: Medium S, [mm Lt,H]


Obverse 9                                               Reverse F


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



Comments: The base above the 887 digits is very weak as is the entire legend. One could speculate that Obverse 9 was lapped given the weak apperance of all design elements and the date punch.

Reverse F can be identified by the die cracks in the outer left wreath. This Reverse F die state is slightly earlier than the pairing with Obverse 6.
