Comments: On Obverse 2, the date punch is positioned the furthest right of the four known obverse dies paired with Type I reverse dies. There are a few random die lines in the shield below the scroll. Type I Reverse B exhibits die doubling in the denomination. Both the left and right feet of D(I)ME are doubled. Previously mentioned doubling on the lower right oak leaf appears to be strike doubling after examination of the NGC plate coin.

Plate Coin: G. Fortin Collection, NGC MS65
