Obverse Diagnostic Point(s) Reverse Diagnostic Point(s)
Comments: Obverse 6 is easily identified by Star 1 almost touching the rock. Various die states of Obverse 6 are known before the severe obverse die crack (Variety 110a, Cracked Obverse #2) develops. Variety 110 shows a die state with the obverse die crack visible from the shield across to the rim at the right of Liberty's foot. This die state is designated as Obverse 6.2.
Reverse G exhibits considerable wear with a weakened die clash, the clash resulting from the pairing with the Partial Drapery obverse. Reverse G is again utilized by the Philadelphia mint in 1839 for additional coinage.
Plate Coin: G. Fortin Collection, MS60
