Reverse Die o

Primary Characteristics

Reverse die o has as its central feature a mint mark that is both set left and tilted left.  There can be other features, primarily doubling or tripling of wreath leaves, clashing, or legend doubling, but it is the mint mark that defines the die.

 

When combined with die 25 it produces VAMs 36 and 36A, which are differentiated date doubling, and by clashing.  In VAM 38 the defining obverse feature is the absence of those features on a die 1.
