Reverse Die l

Primary Characteristics

Reverse die l is a little more difficult to identify because the difference in a centered die and one that is placed left of center can be subtle.  However,  with a little practice and comparison with die a coins you should be able to identify the placement.


Once you know you have an O set left reverse die, VAMs can only be determined from one of the eight obverse dies.  You can see the details of those dies by following the links below.
