Obverse

Date
1900-O VAM-35A 0916 1900-O VAM-35A 1716 1900-O VAM-35A 2016
Attributed near date. Attributed doubling of the date at the top inside loops of 900 and upper outside second 0. Divergent cracks between the bottom of the 9 and 0 form a "bow tie." The uniformity of cracks for each coin suggest that they were minted within a relatively narrow time frame. Nonetheless, the size and shape of the gaps between denticles suggest that the order of minting within the die state may have been 0916 - 2016 - 1716.

Wing and "n" Clash
1900-O VAM-35A 0916 1900-O VAM-35A 1716 1900-O VAM-35A 2016
Attributed clashed "n" of the motto "In God we trust." A clashed "n" is most visible on coin 2016. The 35A clashed "n" is weaker for the double clashed stage than for the single clashed stage.

RIB
1900-O VAM-35A 0916 1900-O VAM-35A 1716 1900-O VAM-35A 2016
Beveling or sinking of the field along the denticles. The size and shape of the denticle gaps along RIB are nearly uniform and, thus, provide little information about mintage order.
