Reverse C3a - Die 1 - Die marker - Roughness and lines in neck - wing gap.
1- The date is listed as a high 6, but is actually slanted upward, with each digit successively higher than the one to its left. The lateral position is the left side of normal.
Comments on Coin:
- This is a multiple clashed die.
- The date is set in the normal position with the 6 set high.
- A die crack is seen running through the Phyygian Cap and into the field ending at the bottom middle part of the second "U" in Pluribus.
