Variety 107

 Obverse 7: High Date, Downward Slope, Broken (S)TATES

Reverse G: Perfect Die


Obverse 7                                                 Reverse G


Obverse Diagnostic Point(s)


Comments: Obverse 7 exhibits few random die lines as seen on other 1868 obverse dies other than one important die line immediately above the Y at the scroll end. With further close inspection in this area, other faint lines were noted that are typical of a misplaced date. Please see the macro image as a guide for your own research.

In summary, the date position is the primary diagnostic point along with a fully broken (S)TATES and the one die line above Y at the scroll end.
