Reverse Diagnostic Point(s)
Comments: This date placement is common and can be located rather easily. Look for the upward sloping date with the stem of the right arrow touching the top of the 3. This obverse die was improperly finished with die scratches surrounding Liberty and additional scratches below the right facing arm.
The reverse die is worn and weak as compared to the bold obverse working die hubbing.
