Variety 102a

 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.
