12A III2 8 · C4b (Doubled 9-4, O Tilted Left, Denticle Impressions Below Wing, Overlapped Reeding) (?) I-3 R-6
Obverse III2 8 - Doubled 9-4 in date. 9 doubled on bottom outside of both loops. 4 slightly doubled on left side of lower half of vertical shaft on fully struck specimens. Doubled profile from front of LIBERTY band down to neck and hair edge above date. Very slightly doubled some left stars and PLUR towards rim.
Reverse C4b - Die #2: Faint vertical die gouge above O in ONE. Polished down denticle impression. Later die state than V12B.
Edge - Reeding is overlapped about 14 segments at 10 o'clock and 6 segments at 5:30 o'clock.
- Overlapped reeding is found on the V12A/12B/22A2.
- The reverse die started on the V22A1, then went to the V12B. Once the small die break occurred above the "O" in DOLLAR, it is called the V12A. From there, the reverse die went to the V22A2. Note that the V12A is a VLDS of the V12B. The obverse has extensive cracks around the perimeter date and legend. By the way, if you are one of the people who wonder what "die poop" means, this VAM listing is a classic example. Really, the little "dot" above the O in ONE is worthy of alphabet soup?
