Reverse Die m

Primary Characteristics

Reverse die m is another of the O/O over-punch mint mark coins that can be determined by the placement of the secondary mark.  However, the pairing with a die 1 on the obverse can be deceiving.

 

The die 1 is quite distinctive because of some over-polishing of the die at some point in its life.  The over-polishing is most clearly seen in the left wreath where various details are just gone.

 

In the eagle's right wing there is a loss of feather detail on the outside row of feathers.  We have seen examples with much less detail than the example shown here.
