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

        

Comments: Repunching of Stars 9 and 10, at their lower points, along with the position of Star 7 are the primary diagnostics for Obverse 2. See the illustrations for the F-102a variety as the repunching of Stars 9 and 10 is difficult to photograph on this heavily toned coin.

On Reverse B, the Large O mintmark is thin and tilts slightly to the left. It is horizontally centered and high.

Plate Coin: G. Fortin Collection, PCGS EF40
