Reverse C: Die Lines Rim To AM(ERICA)


Obverse 3.3                                              Reverse C


Obverse Diagnostic Point(s)


Comments: Obverse 3 is rarely seen with a second large rim cud by Star 13 and Liberty's foot.

Reverse C will still show parallel die lines originating from the right rim into AM(ERICA) as previously described for Variety 103a.

I have only seen two examples of the doubled cud obverse die state. The initial plate coin for this web-book was a rough example grading EF40 net VG-8 due to many surfaces marks. The current plate coin is from the Frog Run collection and brought $748 at the November 30, 2004 American Numismatic Rarieties auction.

Plate Coin: G. Fortin Collection, AU50 Net EF45 - Frog Run Collection
