Reverse A: Handcut Die


Obverse 1                                                            Reverse A


Comments: Weight at 5.5 grams and white metal composition. Normal coin turn die alignment. Cutting of obverse stars and reverse legend is crude. Central design elements are much weaker than stars and legend. Surfaces show this bogo circulated for some period of time.
