'''Comments:'''<br />
'''1-''' Both the C3k and C3l reverses report an O mint mark set left for vams [[1881-O VAM-3|3]], [[1881-O VAM-23|23]], [[1881-O VAM-32|32]], and [[1881-O VAM-35|35]]. Research is needed to determine if<br />
'''2''' -[[1881-O VAM-35|VAM-35]] has the same reverse as VAM 23. VAM 23 is the later die stage.<br />
'''3''' - A third die pair using this reverse in a later stage than VAM 23 shows a clash mark on the reverse up from the wing edge and an unclashed obverse different from VAM 23.<br />
