Variety 111

 Obverse 11: Misplaced 8 In Base, Medium Level Date

Reverse I: Die Cracks

        

Obverse 11                                                Reverse I

 

Obverse Diagnostic Point(s)

        

Comments: Obverse 11 exhibits a misplaced lower loop of an 8 digit in the base. This extra 8 digit is located mid way between the final two 8 digits in the date. The lower loop of the 8 digit is well defined once the collector can differentiate the extra digit within the base. Reverse I is cracked as illustrated above. The misplaced 8 digit was first identified by Chris Pilliod.
