LVA Plate Photos:
The date is in the nominal position. You can see if at the top right, However, it is faster to make the attribution with the crack netween the 1 and the 8, which is easily visible in the full date shot.
The 1 is doubled.
Additionally, unique die polish scratches are visible throughout the obverse.
The doubled O mint mark is all that is needed to attribute the reverse die.
