 Obverse Diagnostic Point(s)



Comments: The author originally discovered the repunching on the 4 digit in 1990. During that time, the discovery coin was a reasonable EF45 example. Over the past years, a Mint State example was found as an upgrade. Close examination of this piece also revealed minor repunching on top of the flag of the 1 digit. The date slopes down on this variety. This is a fairly common variety that can be located with some searching.
