Reverse Die n

Primary Characteristics

Reverse die n is primarily defined by its doubled legend and motto.  But it can contain additional features related to doubling of features and over-polishing.

 

In the case of VAM 30 it is paired with obverse die 19 where a doubled 1--1 in the date and a doubled earlobe are present.  In the case of VAMs 37, 37A, and 37B you have normal obverse dies, but with the A and B varieties there are defining features like clashing with letter transfer and a beveled field.

 

With VAM 59 there are polishing lines on the inside of the wreath bow.
