Obverse 5                                                 Reverse F


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



Comments: Obverse 5 exhibits several key diagnostics. The 3 digit in the date is repunched north, look under the top crossbar for this evidence. Obvious die scratches are also seen from Liberty's foot to the rim, with others between Stars 12, 13 and rim.

Ahwash listed this obverse as both A-3 and A-5, however I am convinced that the same die is responsible for his two separate observations.

Reverse F exhibits noticeable die scratches from the rim to U(NIT)ED.

Plate Coin: G. Fortin Collection, PCGS MS62 - Ahwash Plate Coin
