Comment: The small "nick" in the right side of the "O" in GOD is still evident on coins from each mint including the proof issues. Many will also have a noticeable die gouge between the left and center peaks of the letter "W" in the word WE of IN GOD WE TRUST. This die gouge is present on issues from both mints as well as on proof coins. This imperfection will also be found on many coins from each mint including proof issues in 1962, 1963, and 1964.
