Variety 115

 Obverse 12: Medium Level Date, Closed 9, Broken Base of 1, Die Crack Base of Date

Reverse B: Doubled Die Reverse #1, Small Block S, [mm Lt,H]


Obverse 12                                                 Reverse B


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




Comments: Obverse 12 exhibits a 1 digit in the date with a clearly broken right foot. A significant die crack starts at the right foot of the first 1 digit then proceeds right through the bases of the date digits. Another die crack starts at the top of the second 1 digit, moves diagonally through the base and Liberty's foot and into the top of AMERI(CA) before exiting to the rim.

Obverse 12 is paired with Reverse B, the Doubled Die Reverse #1. Again, doubling is clearly seen within the denomination. Doubling is most evident on (ON)E and (DI)ME.
