A characteristic may not span the entire die progression. Thus, not all characteristics may be present in any one coin. None of the described characteristics are vetted by a third party grader.

Did you notice that this 36A appears to be triple clashed? The extra parts of the beard may be more hair clashes than typically seen. This is an interesting coin. Will take some time to digest. For now, this page is private. Let me know if you want it to be public. I can remove this comment widget whenever you like. It may be interesting to know what the VW Crowd says about the beard. Thus far, I think that this coin is unique. I am not able to make out a convincing E. I have a bunch of 36A LDS / 1H copies. You can always see the E with a loupe but it is not easy. I really like the photographs of the wreath crack at the berry. Notice that the R is doubled.

Thank you Ron and Linda! Yes, I must fire up the D810 and get this bad boy featured on the SD home page. Beautiful coin and possibly a rare die state. Reading my comment above goes along with the wing clash at the jaw neck junction I see with the loupe. You show it in photograph e.
