Variety 107

 Obverse 7: Misplaced Digit To Right of Pendant, High Level Date

Reverse G: Perfect Die


Obverse 7                                              Reverse G


Obverse Diagnostic Point(s)


Comments: The top loop of an 8 or 9 digit is visible in the lower gown immediately to the right of the pendant. On this Mint State specimen, the outline of the inner loop of the misplaced digit is visible under a stereo microscope. The inner loop appears to have the narrow top opening suggesting that the misplaced date is either an 8 or 9 digit.

This variety was first introduced to me by Jim Smith and was publish as MPD-003 in Kevin Flynn's misplaced date book entitled "Two Dates Are Better Than One".
