Reverse Die j

Primary Characteristics

Reverse die j only appears with one VAM, number 12.  The reverse die is the defining characteristic of this VAM because the obverse is a normal die 1.


Like other O/O varieties it is the placement of the over-punch that makes the difference in identification.  On die j the over-punch is in the lower right inside of the mint mark, and we know this because the bottom of the over-punch shows as a curve to the left.
