Is there a link to all of the different little "winglets" on the reverse dies of the 8 Tail Feather? It would be nice to have 1 image or page that displays them all.

I'm not sure if this is what you are looking for or not.
You have to scroll down the page a little to see the 8 TFs.
Hopefully this helps.

Thanks for the images.

I am trying to focus in on the little feathers that are near the wing base and the legs, where the famous "comma" feather is.

I am finding that these feathers evolved differently in the VAMS and it helps to at least pin down which stage of reverse die was being used.

There is a great book on this. The 1878 Morgan Dollar attribution guide by Jeff Oxman.
