Obverse 4 Reverse E
Obverse Diagnostic Point(s) Reverse Diagnostic Point(s)
Comments: The obverse is a highly polished rusted die that has been placed back into usage by the Carson City mint. It is approaching its end of life and has shattered. The reverse die is clashed and shows considerable die erosion between the wreath devices and the rim.
I have seen a number of dimes from these dies. The determination of earlier die states for Obverse 4 is incomplete.
Plate Coin: Gerry Fortin Collection, PCGS MS62
