While inputting my new Harrison $1 coin into my NEW coin database, it lists a Pos A and a Pos B for each mint. Can you can tell me the difference between a Pos A and B. Thank you

Doesn’t the database software have a help button to explain? If not maybe this isn’t the right database s/w for you. I don’t know myself, use an Excel spreadsheet to track my coins, works great.
