Obverse 2: Medium Date, Downward Slope
Reverse B: Lightly Clashed Die
Obverse 2 Reverse B
Obverse Diagnostic Point(s)
Comments: This variety tends to be weakly struck at the head and breast areas. Ahwash indicates that A-1a is a later die state of the proof die, Obverse 1. However close inspection of his plate coin revealed that A-1a and A-1 are different obverse dies based on date placements. There are die chips around Stars 3, 4 and 6.
Reverse B is lightly clashed.
Plate Coin: G. Fortin Collection, EF45
