Obverse Hub III2 Die 1

No die clash marks or just a single diagonal clash line at the neck, no clashed letters.

 

Reverse Hub C3 Die a

Normal die with a long thin die gouge from the D through the O in DOLLAR, with a few faint denticle impressions with spacing of denticles above the gouge.  The denticle impressions were likely worn away quickly.  So this is likely a later die state than VAMs 18 and 43, but an earlier state than VAMs 1B2 and 49.

 

This reverse die gouge is shared with VAMs:
