Variety 102

 Obverse 2: Medium Level Date

Reverse B: Medium S, [mm C,L,TR2]


Obverse 2                                                Reverse B


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


Comments: Obverse 2 can be easily diagnosed via the date position with date punched that is further left with DR measurement 0L. There are die chips around Stars 3 through 8.

The Medium mintmark on reverse B has a slight right tilt and appears to be positioned lower than on Reverse A.

I would recommend that the obverse date position be employed for separating Variety 101 and 102 examples.
