Reverse B: Medium O, [mm C,H]
Obverse 1.2 Reverse B
Obverse Diagnostic Point(s) Reverse Diagnostic Point(s)
Comments: When initially paired with Reverse B, Obverse 1 is clashed. There is a single but bold set of clash marks to the left and right of Liberty and behind the head area. The die cracks on Obverse 1 continue to become more prominent during this die state especially the die crack from STATE(S) through Liberty's head then right to the rim.
Interestingly, Reverse B shows no die clash marks which indicates that Obverse 1 was paired with another reverse die during its initial clashing event. Much more sophisticated research will be needed to find this clashed reverse die. The mintmark on Reverse B is centered horizontally and is positioned slightly above the horizontal cross hair line.
