Obverse 3.2 Reverse D
Obverse Diagnostic Point(s)
Comments: Varieties 105 and 105a die states are the most commonly seen among 1839-O varieties. Early die state examples of Obverse 3 are typically found with either a rim cud at 5:00 (Variety 105) or the combination of rim cuds at 1:00 through 4:00 and at 5:00 (Variety 105a).
In an even later die state, the two rim cuds will nearly merge. See the Variety 105b die state.
