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.
