LVA Plate Photos:
Obverse pitting can be found by the upper lip in the field. On higher grade, well struck specimens, it will be evident all the way into the nostril. There is also a small patch of pitting between the first and second right stars.
There are three notable points for pitting on the reverse: by the tips of the arrowheads (the primary PUP), within and around the mint mark, and by the second L of DOLLAR.
