Obverse 14                                              Reverse M


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




Comments: Strong doubling of UNITED continues to be evident on Obverse 14 when paired with Reverse M. 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.

Reverse M exhibits die cracks within the left and right wreath areas. See the mapping above. The mintmark positions on Reverse C and M appear to be identical. One must use die cracks to differentiate the two reverse dies.
