Reverse Die q

 

Primary Characteristics

Reverse die q appears only once and can be recognized by a doubling of the legend, motto, and wreath.  It is paired with an obverse die 1, but a somewhat unique variation.

 

This is one of those dies that is identified more easily by recognizing the obverse die and then checking the reverse for features that match.  Even though the obverse die is a normal die 1, it has a unique die scratch that runs parallel to the front of the eye and is easily recognizable.
