    I was amazed by the quality of die engraving on such a small coin. Doug, it sounds like robe pattern may be an interesting variation to watch out for.

    Jb's and mine came from the same seller which had an impressive selection from this mint.

    Your robe is more intricate and not as common and it is found on several workshops.
