CARo _ LVS (inscribed in two lines, one globule above the letter C, another under the letter L).

SCI MARTIN (circular legend around one globule surrounded by dots).

The round shape on the reverse, between the letter S and the letter N, in my opinion, is not a globule. We see the end of the letter S which overflows in relief on this form. So it seems logical to think that this was not present on the die.
