Variety 102

 Obverse 2: Repunched 1 Digit, High Level Date, Open 5

Reverse B: Perfect Die


Obverse 2                                                Reverse B


Obverse Diagnostic Point(s)


Comments: The date in Obverse 2 is positioned slightly lower than the date of Obverse 1. There is noticeable repunching on the flag of the 1 digit. The 5 digit is open as the date is weakly punched into the obverse die.

Reverse B is much bolder than Reverse A and is perfect.

In the July 1996 issue of the Gobrecht Journal, Ray Lathrop first published an article showing this 1851 dime with repunching below the flag of the first 1 digit. The macro images are from the Ray Lathrop coin.
