Variety 108

 Obverse 4.2: Very Weak Inner Drapery, Strong Die Clashing

Reverse C: Large O, [mm Rt,C], Clashed Die


Obverse 4.2                                               Reverse C


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



Comments: Obverse 4 is strongly clashed to the right side of Liberty. However, Reverse C does not show the corresponding clash marks. Further research is still needed to determine the reverse die paired with Obverse 4 during the die clashing event. Reverse C is in an early die state producing strong details in the wreath leaves.
