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




Comments: Strong doubling of UNITED is very evident on Obverse 14. The doubling is located to the left of the final letters. Die doubling can also be seen on the vertical shield lines as illustrated above. The doubling is hard to detect without a multiple angle lighting source.

Obverse 14 is initially paired with Reverse L, which exhibits a Medium S mintmark that slopes sharply to the right. There is a die file line in the lower loop of the mintmark. This die file line should not be mistaken as repunching on the mintmark.
