Obverse 8: Misplaced 8 In Denticles, High Date, Slight Downward Slope
Reverse H: Perfect Die
Obverse 8 Reverse H
Obverse Diagnostic Point(s)
Comments: The top loop of an 8 digit in visible within the denticles directly below the left side of the second 8 digit in the date. This variety was discovered by Chris Pilliod and was first reported in the Gobrecht Journal.
Examples seen from the Obverse 8 and Reverse H die pair come well struck with strong wreath and denomination details on the reverse but unfortunately, have weak head details.
