Obverse 2.2: Stars 8 and 9 Repunched
Reverse A.3: Late Die State of Doubled Die Reverse
Obverse 2.2 Reverse A.3
Obverse Diagnostic Point(s) Reverse Diagnostic Point(s)
Comments: Progressive die wear is very visible on both Obverse 2 and Reverse A. Stars 8 and 9 continue to show repunching at the top star points.
Reverse A exhibits extensive wear with a bold die crack through STATE(S OF AMERI)CA and a second die crack from top of AMERIC(A) to rim.
This is the latest Reverse A die state example seen. The author would appreciate information on potential 1838 dimes with a later die state than that shown as the Variety 102a plate coin.
