Comments: The lower portion of the shield is always weak on Obverse 1. Die chips around Stars 12 and 13.
The Large O mintmark on Reverse B is oblique with the upper loop of the mintmark being much stronger than the bottom loop of the mintmark. The mintmark has a strong left tilt though the above photograph does not clearly present this observation. See Variety 105 for a better illustration of the mintmark's left tilt.
