Gordon Wrubel: Quickfinder Notes: There is a very simple way to distinguish the New Reverse die from the Old Reverse die. Just look at the "O" in "OF". The New Reverse die has a ROUND "O" while the Old Reverse has an OVAL "O". The branch mint issues of Charlotte and San Francisco (none were issued by the Dahlonega Mint in 1860), used the Old Reverse die. The 1860 New Reverse is very scarce but has about three times as many survivors as the Old Reverse.
