A nice spread shows on the outer edges of the date - tripling shows inside the diagonal of the 4. A nicely spread clockwise pivot (from K-3) shows in LIBERTY. The tripling in the date and the unrelated doubling in LIBERTY technically makes this die a quadrupled die. This die is coupled with 1942D-1MM-012.
