Variety 104

 Obverse 4: High Date, Downward Slope, Broken and Repaired (S)TATES

Reverse D: Medium S, [mm Lt,C,TR6], Medium S Over S In Top Loop


Obverse 4                                                 Reverse D


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



Comments: Kam Ahwash lists his Ahwash 4 variety as a Medium S over Small S mintmark but supplies no photographs. Wexler and Miller list the repunched mintmark variety shown above as a Medium S over S. Since no one in the numismatic field has produced an alternate Medium S over Small S variety, I must assume that Ahwash believed the first mintmark punch in the upper loop of this variety to be that of a Small S.
