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




Comments: Obverse 13 can be diagnosed by the tops of a misplaced 7 digit in the denticles directly below the first 7 digit. I have done an overlay comparison of the 7 digit in the date with the misplaced 7 digit in the denticles. Clearly, the overlaid photographs confirms that we have a misplaced date diagnostic for Obverse 13. There is a die defect on the gown fold directly above and slightly to the right of the pendant. The obverse shows light die clashing. The date digits are weakly punched. The misplaced 7 digit on Obverse 13 was first reported by Dick Osburn. The plate coin is his discovery coin.

On Reverse K, there is two vertical die cracks from the corn ear down into the oak leaves. Reverse K is heavily clashed. The Small CC mintmark is positioned left and has tilts right.

Plate Coin: G. Fortin Collection, ANACS AU58
