Obverse 3                                                 Reverse C


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



Comments: Obverse 2 is easy to diagnose through its very high date and the 185 digits touching the base. Reverse C has heavy die flash around bow loops and knot. The area of flash contains numerous die lines that cannot be highlighted through macro photography. Several die lines are visible between rim and AMERI(C)A.
