Variety 101

 Obverse 1: Proof Die, High Date, Downward Slope, Closed 9

Reverse A: Proof Die

        

Obverse 1                                               Reverse A

 

Obverse Diagnostic Point(s)

Comments: Proof strikes from Obverse 1 can be easily diagnosed by a high date punch that slopes down sharply. The date punch is bold and the lower loop of the 9 digit is nearly closed.

Reverse A is perfect.

I have found both proof Varieties 101 and 102 to be equally available.
