Reverse H: Parallel Die Line and Die Crack In Lower Right Wreath
Obverse 9 Reverse H
Obverse Diagnostic Point(s) Reverse Diagnostic Point(s)
Comments: A die defect or blob is located at Liberty's neckline. This defect is a key diagnostic point for Obverse 9, since the date position is similar to several other obverse dies with a date position of DR 0R. There is an obverse die crack at the lower loop of the 8 digit, then through bottoms of 71 digits, then up through base to AMERIC(A), exiting to rim.
In the lower right wreath, Reverse H exhibits a radial die line that runs parallel to a more obvious die crack.
