CC In Wreath
Obverse 9.2: High Level Date, Die Crack Through Bottom Date
Reverse I.3: Retained Cud 3:30-5:00, Small CC, [mm Rt,C]
Obverse 9.2 Reverse I.3
Reverse Diagnostic Point(s)
Comments: Obverse 9 die cracks are consistent with those listed for Variety 113a. Die crack through bottom of date digits is clear while the die crack which runs from Liberty's foot up through AMER(ICA) is also visible.
During Variety 113c die state, the reverse die is completely cracked with the missing portion of the die resulting in a large retained cud at 3:30 down through 5:00.
The Variety 113c plate coin was first presented to me at the October 2015 Rochester Numismatic Association coin show by Brian Treitley. He agreed to share this new die state for inclusion in the web-book.
Previous/Subsequent Die Pairings - In Wreath Obverse 9
After striking In Wreath dimes with this die pairing, Obverse 9 will be paired with BW Reverse B (Variety 103) to strike additional coinage. This obverse die will continued to degrade during this pairing with the die crack through the date becoming more severe. In the final die pairing with BW Reverse E (Variety 112), the obverse die completely shatters producing a huge cud through the date digits.
Previous/Subsequent Die Pairings - In Wreath Reverse I
Variety 113 is the only known die pairing with Reverse I. The centered mintmark position and die cracks listed here should allow for easier identification of other potential die pairings.
