 Obverse 2: Very High Level Date

Reverse B: Perfect Die


Obverse 2                                                Reverse B


Obverse Diagnostic Point(s)


Comments: The date punch on Obverse 2 is designated as a Very High Date since the 18(4)8 digite touches the base. This date punch is level with respect to the base as compared to the downward sloping date punch on Obverse 1. There are obvious die scratches from Liberty's foot to the rim. Reverse B comes with significant flash around the bow loops and ribbon ends.
