Obverse Hub III2 Die 3

The left 8 slightly doubled at the lower left inside of upper loop. The right 1 is doubled at the top and on the lower right side of vertical bar as a notch.  However the first 1 and second 8 can also be doubled making this a somewhat confusing VAM to identify.

 

Some coins show a vertical die scratch outside the L in LIBERTY on the headband.  There are a few small horizontal lines inside of the ear.

 

On some of our examples the coin is clashed but without letter transfer.

Normal Die but there are several leaves over polished in the left wreath.

 

Die Marker - There is a X diagonal polishing lines on the 5th and 6th inner feathers from the bottom of the eagle's left wing.
