Obverse 30: Proof Die, Medium Level Date
Reverse DD: Proof Die
Obverse 30 Reverse DD
Obverse Diagnostic Point(s)
Comments: 1891 dated proofs are common and are found well struck.
Three separate die pairs were employed for striking proof coinage. This variety is the most common of the three die pairs and could account for more than half of the available 1891 proofs. There are no obvious diagnostics on Obverse 30 other than a medium level date punch.
Reverse DD is perfect.
