Discovery 2012 by Doug Bindner
1D III2 1 - C3a (Die Gouges Upper Tail Feathers) (194) I-3 R-6
Reverse C3a - Diagonal die gouges at top left and right upper tail feathers. Horizontal die scratch on left two tail feathers.
1. "Diagonal die gouges at top left and right upper tail feathers & scratch on the left 2 lower TF. Unusual HIGH reed count of 194, same as VAM 50 & VAM 55. But doesn't seem to match either and the discovery coin has some wear on it. Pretty strong dies gouges! No Hub doubling."
