@physics-fan3.14 I hope you don't mind that I passed on your reference re Seated halves to @Courtney Plum.
Well, I have no idea who that is. But it isn't my reference - it's Bill Bugert's. He's made it available for free on the internet for the specific purpose of sharing.
A new member. If you click on her profile and look at the post it's about some CC Mint Liberty Seated Halves she bought.
Medium letters this is actually a leftover 1839 O capped bust half rev die. Letters are noticeably larger and close to the rim. Note the space separation between S OF A .
Large letters this rev started in 1842, the letters are slightly larger and still close to the rim, but now S OF A are so close together it almost looks like one word. The left foot of A is under the upper serif of the F.
Calling one of them rev of 38 is a bit confusing because both the small letter and medium letter reverse were 1839 reverses, but the medium letter is the same style that was used in 1838.
Separate names with a comma.
