Obverse Die 31

Primary Characteristics

Obverse die 31 has the first 1 slightly tripled at the top right side of the vertical shaft.


The first 8 is slightly doubled at the top left inside of the upper loop, the top right inside of the lower loop, and strongly doubled at the right outside of both loops.


There are some tiny die chips just below the 18 near the denticles.

Die Crack Characteristics

Obverse Die 31 is paired with Reverse Die g to produce VAM 46.  We have four examples of VAM 46 that range in grade from AU 58 through Mint State 2.  One of the Mint State coins is monster toned and not appropriate for analysis.



None of the coins exhibit any signs of die cracks or breaks.
