Reverse C3i– Slight doubling on arrow feathers, shafts and heads on lower edge, some feathers between legs and right side of eagle’s left leg. IV S mint mark set slightly high and tilted far to the right.
Comments: Since VAM numbers are assigned by die classification, and not just by die pairing, multiple die pairings may exist.
