Obverse 7: Extra 1 In Denticles, High Date, Downward Slope, Clashed Die
Reverse G: Clashed Die, Die Cracks In Right Wreath
Obverse 7 Reverse G
Obverse Diagnostic Point(s)
Comments: The bold top of a misplaced 1 digit is visible in the denticles directly below the 8 in the date. Traces of the top loop of an 8 digit are also visible in the denticles below the 7 in the date. The obverse die is heavily clashed on most examples of this variety.
Reverse F is also clashed with die cracks in the right wreath.
This variety offers the strongest example of a misplaced digit punch in the denticles for the Seated dime series. Discovered by Chris Pilliod and Teary Searcy during the 1991 FUN show and first listed in the Gobrecht Journal followed by inclusion into the Top 100 Varieties set during 2003.
