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


Comments: On Obverse 4, there is minor doubling in the legend while the 9 digit in the date appears closed. Obverse 4 will be polished and paired with a second reverse die. See Variety 107.

Reverse C once again exhibits a Small S that is positioned left and high and shows considerable die erosion and weakness in wreath details.
