Obverse Die 24

 

Primary Characteristics

Obverse die 24 appears only in one VAM when coupled with reverse die l.  This is not a difficult die to identify and the reverse die makes it even more straightforward.

 

On die 24 the 188 in the date is doubled.  The first 1 is doubled below the upper crossbar.  The first 8 is doubled at the top inside and right outside of the upper loop, and the bottom outside of the lower loop. The second 8 is doubled at the right outside of the upper loop.

 

While this description seems straightforward, some of the doubling is surface doubling and you will need to be able to identify that type doubling.
