Reverse Diagnostic Point(s)
Comments: Obverse 20 exhibits a date punch that is positioned far right for 1875 coinage. The obverse die is strongly clashed with the E in DIME being visible below Liberty's right forearm. There are faint die cracks from the 1 digit to the rim and on both sides of Liberty's head. Reverse S shows a nice radial die crack throughout the wreath and ribbon ends. There are no clash marks on Reverse S.
Plate Coin: G. Fortin Collection, MS63
