Variety 108

 Obverse 5.2: Pre-Partial Drapery, Repunched 1, Repunched Star 5 and 12

Reverse G: Heavy Die Flash at Top of Bow


Obverse 5.2                                              Reverse G


Obverse Diagnostic Point(s)                  Reverse Diagnostic Point(s)



Comments: Obverse 5, prior to the die clashing that produces the partial drapery variety, shows considerable die wear and weakness in the repunching of Stars 12 and 13. Repunching of the 1 under the flag is still evident while some traces of the repunching above the 8 digit can be seen.

The heavy die flash around the bow outline and lower wreath is used to identify Reverse G.
