Variety 102

 Obverse 2: Medium Level Date

Reverse B: Medium O, [mm Rt,L,TR11], Die Crack Rim Through STA(TES)


Obverse 2                                                 Reverse B


Obverse Diagnostic Point(s)                  Reverse Diagnostic Point(s)



Comments: The Medium O mintmark on Reverse B exhibits a strong right tilt of 11 degrees. Its position is lower than the Medium O mintmark on Reverse A. Die cracks are visible from rim through STA(TES). Both Obverse 2 and Reverse B are surprisingly well struck for an 1842 New Orleans dime.

Plate Coin: G. Fortin Collection, AU50
