I understand the description, but I do not know what upward and downward look like in this case. On my coin, the leaf looks like the leaf is flat and pointing at the word DOLLAR <><

What does downward type "a" and upward type "b" look like? I could not find any photos to compare anywhere on the Internet.

Could someone post photos? What is mine?

I am posting photos of the Obverse, Reverse, and the leaf on the edge.

Th leaf is shaped like a jalapeño pepper. The end of the leaf furthest from the lettering is the stem. The stem is the key. I think yours is pointing upwards, but I'm not sure. I don't have a pic of mine, but if no one posts one in the next couple of days I'll see if I can.

I googled fir images of "1794 LARGE cent edge lettering" and came up with only one image of an edge, and it did not show the leaf.

I did find this thread that has some pics:

Stem is curving upward so 18b.
