Obverse Diagnostic Point(s) Reverse Diagnostic Point(s)
Comments: The repunched right C mintmark on Variety 133 is quite significant and was first identified by Harry Smith and published in the July 2010 Gobrecht Journal issue. Variety 133 exhibits many obverse and reverse diagnostics that should facilitate easy attribution.
Obverse 26 is characterized by a medium level date with small knob 6, a visible die line through the lower right shield and a fully broken (O)F.
The repunched right C mintmark on Reverse Y is most obvious at the top of the mintmark with extra metal that appears to be a horn. Additional repunching is seen inside the mintmark. The denomination is doubled, stronger on ON(E D)IME as an additional diagnostic. There are parallel die lines between the left wreath and the left ribbon end as illustrated.
