Obverse Die 26

 

Primary Characteristics

Obverse die 26 has some features often shared with double profile dies, but this one is only doubled at the back of the phrygian cap.  The letters UNUM are also doubled.

 

Not mentioned in the description but as a die marker, there is a notch in the lower right of the vertical shaft.

 

Since the die paring is with reverse die a, there are no reverse features to distract from the die identification.
