First 8 is doubled at bottom inside of lower loop. 7 is doubled on left side of vertical shaft.<br />
'''Reverse A¹a''' - First 8 TF design type used, with raised beak, small feathers between eagle's legs and bottom wings, I of IN touching top of eagle's wing. This die variety has inside E of ONE, R of DOLLAR and last A of AMERICA strongly doubled. Letters of legend frequently have machine doubling. Two small feathers added on eagle's right side and three on eagle's left side between leg and bottom of wing.<br />
# PCGS labels this "Spear Point," because the tip of the added wing feather next to the eagles body is shaped like a spear point. There is a curving die scratch between ONE and Dollar. However, an EDS found in July 2007 does not exhibit this scratch nor exhibit the typically seen obverse or reverse die cracks.<br />
