Obverse Die 28


Primary Characteristics

Obverse die 28 appears only once in VAM 42.


On the die the first 8 is slightly doubled on the surface at the top and right outside of the upper loop, and the left inside of both loops.  There can be a slight doubling of right stars 1-3. As a marker, the right 8 has a tiny die chip inside the lower loop.


The die is paired only with reverse die a, but the die gouge is very different from others and aids in the identification of the VAM.
