Reverse Ha: Reverse Rotated Left 55 Degrees, Medium S, [mm Rt,H,TL5]


Obverse 8                                              Reverse Ha


Comments: Variety 111a is another rotated reverse occurence in the Liberty Seated dime series. Reverse H is rotated approximately 55 degress left during the Obverse 8 and Reverse H die pairing.

This die state was first identified by Jason Feldman at the 2013 Spring Whitman Baltimore Coin Expo and announced in the LSCC's April E-Gobrecht issue. The above plate coin is the discovery specimen and the only example known though others will probably appear now that the die state's existance is revealed.
