Type I Reverse - Variety 112

 Obverse 12: Very High Level Date, Die Defect Above Right Shield Point, Large Knob 6

Reverse K: Small Block S, [mm Lt,C]


Obverse 12                                              Reverse K


Obverse Diagnostic Point(s)                    Reverse Diagnostic Point(s)



Comments: Obverse 12 can be easily identified by its very high date. Though the date does not touch the base, I have designated this obverse as a Very High Date position to aid with the attribution of the numerous 1876-S obverse dies. A large die blob is visible above the right upper point of the shield.

On Reverse K, there is a faint amount of doubling on O(N)E, but this doubling would not be visible on most circulated examples.

Plate Coin: G. Fortin Collection, NGC MS63 CAC
