Variety 103a

 Obverse 2: Doubled Die Obverse, Medium Date, Downward Slope, Die Scratch In Base

Reverse B.2: Very Weak Medium S, [mm Lt,H]


Obverse 2                                               Reverse B.2


Obverse Diagnostic Point(s)                   Reverse Diagnostic Point(s)


Comments: Reverse B exhibits a very weak mintmark while the wreath devices are bold. A higher grade specimen would be needed to determine the potential cause for this very weak mintmark. On this lower grade plate coin, the Obverse 2 diagonal die scratch is still evident. Traces of die doubling can be found on the letters within AMERICA.
