Comments: Obverse 8 is paired with a second reverse die that was unknown until this listing during 2009. On Obverse 8, there are several parallel die scratches to the right of outer right edge of shield that render diagnosis straightforward. Reverse M exhibits a small CC mintmark that is well centered between the bow knot and denticles immediately below. There is a small gap between the two "C" mintmark punches; this spacing is closer than on most other reverse dies.
The F-119 1877-CC Type 2 obverse and reverse die pairing was discovered by Liz Coggins at JJ Teaparty. She submitted to the author for listing in the web-book at the 2009 FUN show.
