 Obverse 9: Doubled Obverse Die North, High Level Date

Reverse J: UNITED Doubled East


Obverse 9                                                 Reverse J


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



Comments: Obverse 9 presents another significantly doubled obverse die with the doubling northward. The doubling is very visible above the top of the shield.

The reverse die also shows slight doubling on UNITED. Doubling is visible at the top of each letter.

More often than not, this variety will be found with an uneven obverse strike including weak stars. Fully struck examples with strong head details and star centrils should bring an incremental premium above the Top 100 Varieties pricing.
