15 III2 9 - C3i (Near Date, Doubled 89, High O) I-2 R-3
Obverse III2 9 - 1 doubled below upper crossbar. Second 9 doubled strongly on top and bottom left inside of upper loop.

1. Van Allen & Mallis image is a set left mint mark. Wrong image or wrong description? JR- saw an example that matches the written description and obverse plate. Image in 2nd edition is correct, while reverse plate in 3rd & 4th editions are for another variety.
