Variety 106a

 Obverse 6.2: High Level Date, Partial (S)TATES

Reverse F.2: Perfect Die


Obverse 6                                                 Reverse F


Obverse Diagnostic Point(s)

Comments: The Long Flag 1 date punch on Obverse 6 is positioned slightly lower than the date on Obverse 5. Ahwash indicates that business strikes and proofs were made from the Obverse 6 and Reverse F die pair. I have found business strikes to be very challenging to locate therefore I am setting an initial rarity estimate of R5 in grades of VF or better.
