Obverse 7.2: High Date, Downward Slope, Broken (S)TATES, Clashed Die
Reverse G.2: Clashed Die
Obverse 7.2 Reverse G.2
Obverse Diagnostic Point(s)
Comments: This is another 1868 die pair that shows a later die state with die clashing. Obverse 7 can be found with die clashing in both the left and right obverse fields.
Reverse G exhibits traces of clashing at DIM(E). The severity of die clashing between the obverse and the reverse is inconsistent as seen on several 1868 clashed die pairs. More research is needed in this area but availability of EF or better specimens is a hurdle.
