Characteristics are described with a degree of granularity intended for die identification more so than for die classification. A characteristic may not span the entire die progression.

1889-O VAM-23 Doubled Ear, 18 Tilted Right, High O - Die Sequence #1

Obverse III2 13 Ear slightly doubled at right inside. Date in normal lateral position but with 18 tilted slightly to right.

Reverse C3f- .

1. Leroy Van Allen lists the slightly doubled inner ear as the primary feature of this die variety. However, this variety also boasts sizable die chips in the upper loop of the D in DOLLAR
on the reverse, which serves as another quick diagnostic. The whole lower reverse exhibits distinctive die sinking which makes the coin field "raised and uneven" per Van Allen.
2. Countermark Morgan Dollar.
