Comments: Repunching below the 1 and 8 digits in the date is most obvious on Obverse 22. Below the base of the 1 digit, there is a long extension of the vertical segment while below the left lower loop of the 8 digit, there is a clear secondary loop.
Reverse T has a Small S mintmark that is positioned left and high.
It is surprising to learn of another 1876 San Francisco die pairing variety with bold date repunching after many years of searching. Discovered by Dr. Tim Cook during August 2015.
