The VAM 114 obverse has a fairly unique characteristic that can be used to identify any reasonably well preserved example. The right edge of the long wheat leaf that folds back onto the cap is doubled fairly strongly on the portion on the cap , but this doubling abruptly appears to stop as the leaf projects above Liberty's cap. Nothing else quite like this is found among the Rev of 78 die marriages.
