Comments: Obverse 13 provides collectors with another repunched 9 digit variety. The repunching is clearly seen directly below the bottom of the upper loop of the 9. This repunching is parallel to the bottom of the upper loop and is similar to the repunching seen on Variety 106. Previously listed 9 digit repunching for Varieties 114 and 115 was that of a residual ball or tail of the 9 digit. Die cracks encircle Obverse 13, see the mapping illustration above.

Reverse O is also cracked with three die cracks intersecting at the bottom of the mintmark. Close attention should be given to the location of the die cracks entering the mintmark as other reverses dies show similar die crack patterns around the Medium O mintmarks.
