Both 1858 Flying Eagle Obverses

The following image shows both 1858 flying eagle obverse dies. Both of these obverses were used on various pattern pieces of this year. The first is the large letter obverse. Notice that the 'A' and 'M' in 'America' touch each other. On the second, the small letter obverse, they do not.
