Obverse Die 13

Primary Characteristics

On die 13 the first 1 in the date is doubled at top right of the vertical shaft and appears as a notch.  The second 1 is doubled at the top of the upper crossbar and on the lower left side of the vertical shaft.


When combined with reverse die d this creates VAM 22, and when combined with normal die a it creates VAM 49.  Although, on VAM 49 the reverse overshadows the die 13 features and becomes the more defining feature of the VAM.
