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



Comments: This is the earliest die state seen for Obverse 1. The 3 and 9 digits in the date show repunching. The 3 digit shows repunching below the lower loop while the 9 digit shows repunching within the upper and lower loops. Stars 5 and 6 are repunched while Star 11 shows repunching outside its star point facing Liberty.

Obverse 1 is paired with Reverse A, which shows considerable wear around UNITED and AMERICA. There is a faint die crack from the wreath to AME(R)ICA. Evidence of die erosion can also be seen behind O(NE). It is suspected that Reverse A has been previously paired with at least one other die, however potential die pairings cannot be identified at this time. Reverse A is rotated left 18 degrees.
